Barry pupils help spread anti-racism message (UK)

Four Barry pupils have been congratulated after their designs were chosen for an anti-racism campaign.

Jola Krystyna Brown, Rebecca Burrows and Jade Saif were presented with certificates by Vale of Glamorgan Mayor Colin Osborne at the Civic Offices on December 14.

The fourth successful student was Amelia Holden, but she was unable to make the awards ceremony due to illness.

Jade, from St Richard Gwyn School, said: "I’m really happy about having my drawing chosen.

"I was looking at a book that described shading techniques, so I decided to draw something like that."

More than 1,000 children took part in the Schools Against Racism 2011 Calendar and Poster competition, which is organised by Cardiff-based anti-racism charity Race Equality First.

Jola (Bryn Hafren), Rebecca (All Saints) and Amelia (Cadoxton Nursery) will see their designs used in a ‘Schools Against Racism’ calendar, whilst Jade’s will be part of a poster campaign to promote race equality.

Cllr Tony Hampton, Vae Council cabinet member for education and lifelong learning, said: "I think it’s a tremendous achievement that their pictures were selected as winning designs.

"They should be very proud of themselves.

"We are all entitled to be treated equally and we can all learn from this campaign."

Each child received £50 in vouchers, with their schools also pocketing £150.
