The Show Racism the Red Card team visited The New Saints Football Club yesterday and gave two local Schools an educational workshop.
The Schools were Holt Primary and Brynteg Primary and Community Foundation Officer, Niall Broe was more than happy to support the event, ‘It was a great session and raised awareness for Show Racism the Red Card. Children were educated on ways of reporting incidents regarding racism. I would like to thank Jason Webber and the team at SRtRC as well as Craig Harrison, Scott Ruscoe and Steve Evans.’
TNS manager, Craig Harrison and his assistant, Scott Ruscoe and Steve Evans both attended the event which was held at The Venue.
Jason Webber and his team talked to the enthusiastic children about the issues regarding racism in sport as well as racism in general.
The children also watched an engaging presentation on how people should ‘show racism the red card.’
They also watched a DVD during the workshop. The DVD was a general anti-racism resource suitable for all ages. It featured high profile footballers such as Thierry Henry, Derek Ferguson, Mustapha Hadji, Ryan Giggs, Rio Ferdinand, Didier Drogba and Samuel Eto’o talking about the issue alongside the experiences of young people.
“A Safe Place” DVD educates people about racism towards asylum seekers and refugees and also about Islamophobia which tackles racism towards Muslims. Each DVD comes with an education pack with discussion points and activities for teachers to use on the resource.
“Out of Site” education pack aims to educate on the topic of racism towards Gypsy, Roma and Traveller groups. Again, this resource includes relevant discussion points and activities.
