Show Racism The Red Card: After entering the “show racism the red card” competition, we all travelled to the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on Thursday April 19th to attend an event called “Show Racism The Red Card”. The reason we agreed on doing this was that we all thought it was an important issue.
When we arrived, there were a lot of students with the work they had done. The pictures showed that a lot of effort went into all the work.
After putting our picture on display we went to hear the speeches. The speaker on the day was President Micheal D.Higgins. He spoke about the importance of inclusion in our society. He was also impressed with the number of schools that entered the competition. The number of competition entries had doubled since last year.
There were invited guests who were members of the panel, which included: Gordon D’Arcy, Eamon Dunphy, Marco Tardelli (Ireland coach), Philip MacMahon (Dublin SFC), Gary Sice (Galway SFC) and they answered questions from students in the audience.
We finished the day with a tour of the Aviva Stadium. We took the opportunity of getting photos and autographs with the invited guests.
By entering the competition we gained a lot of experience and enjoyment and learnt more about the topic of racism. We really enjoyed the day.
