Prep School Pupil Shows Racism the Red Card
Congratulations to Prep School pupil Sophie Bond who was selected as a winner in the Show Racism the Red Card Competition.
Sophie, who is in J3 produced an imaginative video which the judging team selected as one of the school’s overall submissions to the national competition. Sophie was awarded a prize in the All Ages Multimedia category.
Mrs Rooney, Head of Wellbeing and the Anti-Discrimination Lead said: “Pupils are always keen to support and be involved in the important SRTRC initiative, and this year we had more entries than ever, from Nursery upwards, including t-shirt designs, creative writing and video and music recordings.
“We shortlisted children from each year group, before selecting 5 pieces to submit. We are delighted that Sophie’s unique film has been recognised, and we look forward to celebrating her achievements in May.
“Well done to Prep School pupils Daniyal Bashir and Eliana Mills and Senior School pupils Melissa Rooney and Isabella Skinner whose work was also judged ‘excellent’ by Solihull staff and was submitted to the SRTRC competition alongside Sophie’s piece.”
Sophie’s Mum, Vicky, added: “I was delighted to receive the news that Sophie had won the competition and I am very proud of her. I was a bit sceptical when Sophie said she wanted to write a poem about fish not being racist, and how people see all fish as beautiful, but it actually makes perfect sense! I think it proves that the world would be a much better place if we viewed things through the eyes of a nine-year-old.”
Sophie is attending the Show Racism the Red Card 2023 School Competition Awards Ceremony at Anfield on Thursday 4 May.
The Show Racism the Red Card Competition encourages young people from schools and other educational settings to produce creative work with an original anti-racism theme.
