Secondary School Workshops

AriSEE’s Secondary School Workshop Project

This workshop will be for Senior school children, this will not be activity based, but discussion based. There will be certain subjects which students will be able to pick randomly and AriSEE staff will discuss these, providing the children with resources, history, presentations, statistics and understanding to combat any negative preconceived ideas on the issues of race.

“Data from the Education Workforce Council Wales cited in the report shows that in 2019-20 there were only 48 applications from minority ethnic students to study initial teacher training in Wales. Of the 1,165 newly qualified teachers in that period, six identified as coming from mixed race backgrounds, 13 Asian and four from black backgrounds. In the same period out of 3,443 headteachers across Wales only seven identified as having non-white backgrounds and none of these were from a black British or black heritage.” –  Taken from a Wales Online article called “There are systemic racisms and barriers to success in Welsh schools, finds report” in 2018

“Race hate crime against children has reached a 3-year high, an NPSCC investigation has found. This included crimes against children under one. Childline held 2,617 counselling sessions about race and faith based bullying between 2015/16 and 2017/18. Girls were more likely to speak to Childline than boys, and children aged 12-15 were the most likely to get in touch.” – NSPCC 

To achieve the above goals, we will provide numbered counters which will be chosen at random and students will be able to engage in the specific subject with open conversation that could lead on to various other subjects. These tokens will relate to a small presentation, which will support our staff with their discussions on the subjects.
