Show Racism the Red Card Wales have hit the ground running with the 7th annual Vale of Glamorgan Council partnership. Fifteen schools in the area have booked in for workshops and the team have already visited pupils at Murch Junior School, Llancarfan Primary School and Oakfield Primary School amongst others.
The 2014 scheme has seen the education team debut a brand new ‘Immigration’ workshop with pupils from Rhws Primary School and St Bride’s Major Primary School. In recent years Education Workers have been faced with an increasing number of questions from pupils who appeared confused about the issue and so created a specific workshop to address this confusion. Classes which had received a general anti-racism workshop in the previous academic year were re-visited and given a more in-depth insight into the topic.
A teacher from Rhws Primary School commented that “Chris was superb with the children and delivered the content with sensitivity and confidence”.
The team will be visiting six youth centres and plenty more schools in the area over the coming months.
If you are a teacher at a school in the Vale of Glamorgan who wishes to book a workshop then please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
