This past week, every year group have participated in a workshop with the charity Show Racism the Red Card, presented by former Peterborough and current Dulwich Hamlet player, Danny Mills.
Racism is an ever-present topic in today’s world, and we are committed to ensuring our school is a racism-free zone.
Show Racism the Red Card is an anti-racism education charity, set up by former Newcastle United player Shaka Hislop to educate young and old to help try to tackle racism. In 1990s Newcastle, Shaka was at a petrol station near St James Park when he was confronted with a group of young people shouting racist abuse at him. After one of the group realised that they had been shouting at Shaka Hislop, the Newcastle United football player, they came over to ask for an autograph.
The hour-long, interactive workshops challenged students to think about their own experiences of racism, racism in today’s society, what racism is, stereotypes, ‘unconscious bias’, white privilege and how they can challenge racist behaviour.
Our thanks go to Danny and Show Racism The Red Card team for an incredible workshop.
