Pupils promoting anti-racism across city
YOUNGSTERS at a city primary school have been tackling the issue of racism head-on with their One World project.
Members of the school council at Gladstone Primary School designed a logo, with an anti-racism theme showing linked hands on a image of the planet Earth, which has been printed on a number of badges.
A spokeswoman for the school, in Gladstone Street, said: “The school council of Gladstone Primary School has designed a logo which they have had made up into badges. “The theme is anti-racism. “Every time they see an act of anti-racism in the school they will present that person with a badge and a certificate.
“The idea is to get the project to grow so that other schools and the community begin to hear about it.”
And the news is starting to spread with the school council having been invited to present their project to other schools in the city, including Ravensthorpe Primary School.
The One World project has also been entered to compete in the Speaker of the House of Commons’ School Council Awards.
