April has flown by for SRtRC Wales and it’s been a truly varied month; the team have worked with young people from the age of nine to nineteen as well as delivering workshops in 8 of the 22 local authorities in Wales.
This month, SRtRC Wales delivered sessions in:
14 primary schools
4 secondary schools
3 special educational needs schools
1 further education college
Working with a total of 1455 young people
At the end of the spring term SRtRC completed its project with Greenhill School, Cardiff. The weekly intervention programme was developed to create a shift in school culture when it came to racism, bullying and responding to these incidents. Thank you to Greenhill for being involved with this project; it has been a pleasure to work with your pupils and teachers and to see the changes that have already been made.
April also saw the first- and possibly last- performance from SRtRC’s very own newly formed band, The Loft Conversions. SRtRC had a fantastic team building day with Rock@Work. Chris and Chris expertly guided us through playing new instruments and writing our own song anti-racism inspired lyrics- though wouldn’t count on anyone giving up the day job!
