Preventing Racism

On Thursday 5th July 2018, our school received two special guests: Steve Jenkins and Sean Wharton both ex professional footballers who represent the charity 'Show Racism the Red Card.'

The day started with an assembly delivered Steve and Sean where they explained who founded the charity and how it came into being. Next each tutor group engaged in a thought provoking workshop which was aimed at preventing Racism by educating pupils about the causes and consequences of Racism. The day ended with a fun and fitness session where pupils had the privillage of playing football with the ex pros!  

 

Pupils benefited from learning about this sensitive issue and showed respect and maturity throughout.  

 

Well done Northern House Solihull!
