March proved to be a very busy month for SRtRC Wales as 74 School and Youth Club Workshops were delivered.
The young people would like to see more workshops like this run as they thoroughly enjoyed it and they were tailored to include everyone.

The Education Team in Wales had a mad March this year as we came to the end of the financial year. Some facts and figures for the month:
74 Workshops Delivered
- 21 Primary Schools
- 7 Secondary Schools
- 14 Youth Clubs
- 4 Club Events
- 2 Teacher Training Conferences
- 1 PRU
Local Authority areas covered included Bridgend, Caerphilly, Cardiff, Monmouthshire, Newport, Powys, RCT, Swansea, Torfaen and Vale of Glamorgan. The workshops were delivered by Education Workers, Chris Stokes and Aimee Jones, and our retired footballer coaches Steve Jenkins and Christian Roberts.
It has been fantastic to reach so many young people in so many different areas and as usual the feedback from pupils and teachers has been positive. In a number of cases the schools are keen for us to expand the work to the other year groups and develop a joined up strategy for educate their pupils about racism. We are delighted to have so many supportive Local Authority partners across Wales and we are looking forward to another busy month in April in the lead up to the Easter holidays.
