Pupils pro­mot­ing anti-racism across city

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

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.

Project: Young­sters from Glad­stone Pri­mary School giv­ing a talk about their One World project to pupils from Raven­sthorpe Pri­mary School.
