Through Welsh Governments FIFA World Cup 2022 – Partner Support Fund Show Racism the Red Card have created World Cup themed anti-racism educational resources for pupils to engage with in classrooms across Wales.
The resources are accompanied with a teacher’s pack providing delivery notes and discussion points for teachers to provide high quality anti-racism education sharing the anti-racism message.
Demand from schools for the anti-racism resources has been high with over 340 schools already registering, receiving the FREE resources from Show Racism the Red Card. This equates to over 81,000 pupils across Wales with access to anti-racism education.
The aims of the resources are to:
- Link the Welsh football team with the message of anti-racism in the minds of children and young people.
- Use the World Cup and sporting role models to leave a legacy of anti-racism and support the aims of the Anti-Racist Action Plan for Wales.
- Get children and young people excited about Wales taking a space on the world stage and in turn, spread this to their wider networks.
- Engage children and young people from diverse ethnic backgrounds in seeing Welsh football as a space for them.
Schools are still able to register to receive resources by registering here.
Show Racism the Red Card Wales Campaign Manager, Dean Pymble commented:
“We’re delighted that pupils and schools across Wales will have access to high quality anti-racism educational resources. It was essential we provided teachers with the delivery guide to enhance their skills and knowledge to deliver the resources effectively and help to create ethnically informed citizens of Wales and the World. Welsh Government have pledged their commitment to create an anti-racist Wales by 2030 and utilising the high profile of our Welsh players and the World Cup will engage and only enhance the anti-racism message.”
