Over 50 young people from Mossvale Primary School, Glencoats Primary School & St Fergus Primary School attended The SMiSA stadium and participated in 3 mini anti racism workshops.

They learned how to become an ally as well as creating their own ways to lead the way on tackling racism in our changemakers workshop. They ended the day creating some fantastic questions which will be answered by several first team players and filmed accordingly for distribution.
