Waterford FC in the Community were delighted to get involved with the Presentation Primary School’s Show Racism The Red Card programme recently.

Show Racism The Card is an anti-racism education charity, established to harness the high-profile nature of footballers as anti-racist role models to educate against racism throughout society. Waterford FC in the Community were delighted to team up with the Presentation Primary School to deliver this important programme for their students.

Included in this initiative was a workshop which consisted of a 45-minute football training session which was ran by Maeve Williams, Amy O’Connor & Paul Phelan from our Community Team, and a classroom activity which was ran by Marton Bisztrai, who is an integration co-ordinator with the immigrant council of Ireland.

Waterford FC’s Head of Community Colin Power was delighted to get involved with this initiative with the Presentation Primary School, commenting:

“We were delighted to team up again with Marton from the Immigrant Council of Ireland to take part in the Show Racism the Red Card Programme in the Presentation Primary School. Maeve once again ran a coaching session for 6th Class with Amy & Paul from the WFC Community team. Thanks to all the staff and pupils for the warm welcome and another very enjoyable morning.”
