We 'Show Racism the Red Card'!

SRTRC

Year 5 had a fabulous day working with Cat and Andre from SRTRC Foundation of Light.

We started the morning with a fitness session delivered by Andre Bennett who is a professional football player. He plays for Middlesbrough but they have loaned the defender, son of former Sunderland skipper Gary, to Gateshead for a month. We had loads of fun playing various ball games with him. This session concluded with a mini football tournament.

After lunch, we got down to the serious side with a workshop about ‘racism’. We learnt the difference between bullying and racism. We had a brief look at the history of racism and also discussed what we can do to change people’s attitudes towards racism.

The children really enjoyed both sessions, made sensible contributions, and gained valuable insights.
