West Dunbartonshire pupils are learning about diversity and participating in lessons to tackle bigotry, religious hate and racism

A high number of West Dunbartonshire pupils are learning about diversity and participating in lessons to tackle bigotry, religious hate and racism.

The Education Service worked with charities Nil By Mouth and Show Racism the Red Card to highlight to pupils the impact of religious hatred through lessons, and to raise further awareness of the issues surrounding sectarianism.

Show Racism the Red Card has worked with 1181 pupils by delivering 27 workshops in 14 schools and have another 62 sessions planned for young people next month.

Nil By Mouth has worked with 615 young people across 15 primary schools.  Following the lessons, 30 young people in S4-S6 are now working towards apprenticeships in the care sector as part of their workplace training programme.
