Over 70 children from Rhosymedre Primary recently attended the Racecourse stadium to take part in the club’s Show Racism the Red Card education day.

The day, which was a great success, started with education worker Noam Devey delivering a workshop, educating them on the topic of racism using interactive activities and discussions.

The pupils then took part in an anti-racism “press conference”.

Prior to the event pupils had to create a newspaper name and were tasked with researching racism in sport and society. Pupils also were required to read newspapers and online blogs to explore how they are designed and written.

From the information they had learnt they had to prepare questions for the press conference at the event to help produce their article for their newspaper after the event.

Northern Ireland international James Gray also attended the event to take part in the press conference.

Pupils now in the role of newspaper journalists were selected to ask questions, introduce themselves and the newspaper they “worked” for followed by their question.

The journalists posed some really challenging questions for the players and had clearly researched and planned some well thought out questions.
