Show Racism the Red Card is an anti-racism education charity, which has been working with young people and adults across Wales since 2006.
On 29th November the newest member of the team, Eryl Jones, visited Darland High School to carry out workshops with our Year 7 students.
Throughout the day students engaged in conversation about racism and focused on the topic of immigration. They learned to understand the injustice and the senselessness of racism and gained a full understanding of its damaging effect. They were also able to evaluate language and the power words can have.
The workshops involved activities to challenge stereotypes and encourage discussion around some famous figures and their journey to the UK, such as Rita Ora and Mo Farah.
An enjoyable day was had by all of our students.With thanks to The Red card for their help and support throughout the day. (www.theredcard.org)
