SARI Soccer visit

This week in sixth class we were so lucky to have representatives from Soccer Against Racism Ireland (SARI) come to visit us.

They held workshops for us and both fifth classes to examine the area of racism and discrimination in sport. We talked a lot about how it feels to be excluded and how discrimination affects everyone, in sport and in fact; everything we do in life. The anti-bullying workshop was so interesting and we enjoyed the activities immensely. We had great fun and also got to play soccer! (and handball )

It really made us think about the many ways discrimination can occur and we learned that if someone asks:

“how many races are there in our world?”

the answer is: ONE!!!

We are all one race:  The Human Race

Thanks so much SARI

From everyone in sixth class
