Education: Secondary / Tue 27th Apr 2021 at 04:06pm
DURING lockdown, the Heads of the Ethnic minority pupil voice (EMPV) group and Ms. Mohamed launched the Show Racism the Red Card Competition.
The competition encouraged young people from Stewards Academy to produce creative work with an original anti-racism theme. Students produced work in a wide range of media, including artwork, creative writing, and film.
The Heads of EMPV; Blessing Zimani, Kemarah Denty and Hardson Palmer said “It is important that the Show Racism the Red Card Competition was introduced to Stewards Academy as racism is such a big topic in today’s modern society. “We are happy that so many students entered the competition, using it to express their thoughts and feelings.”
A panel consisting of both students and staff decided the winners and those that would represent the school at the national competition.
Mrs. Ginger (Headteacher) said…. “Ethnic Minority Pupil Voice has always been a strong vehicle in Stewards for promoting racial justice and equality over many years. The work of this group continued unabated during lockdown, with the launch of this super competition. I am so proud of the pupils who took part and so impressed with our winning entries!’
