Welcome to Broomhill Primary School
Broomhill Pupil Selected for Ambitious National ‘Captains’ Anti-Racism Campaign
An inspiring Broomhill P6 pupil (far right in the photo above) is helping lead an important campaign for change with the charity Show Racism the Red Card.
Launched in February 2022, ‘Captains’ is a programme organised by the charity to embed race equality and anti-racism across all schools by next term.
The programme aims to ensure the voices and experiences of Scotland’s ethnic minority young people are heard and will feed into the decision-making process for curricular reform.
Ahead of its launch, Show Racism The Red Card received hundreds of applications to join the Captains programme. Jess was delighted to be named as one of only 40 primary and secondary pupils for the special initiative. They will use their voices and experiences of racism to help shape future changes around the curriculum and adapt education for a modern Scotland.
