Show Racism the Red Card

Midleton Educate Together NS were delighted to promote ‘Anti Racism’ on the 25th of November. ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ initiative promoted by the FAI was ¬†whole school initiative where every member of the school were invited to wear red. We were very grateful for David Stanton TD, Minister of State for Justice with special responsibility for Equality, Immigration and Integration and David Bell from the FAI for their attendance.

A special thank you to our very special guest ‘ Jeff the Reff’, Show Racism the Red Card Mascot who made the pupils day with his appearance!
