Motion text

That this House congratulates Iona Davies, a pupil at Hermitage academy in Helensburgh, on winning first prize in the S1-S3 category in the Show Racism the Red Card creative arts competition; recognises Iona’s skill and hard work in creating her stunning artwork, We’re All Human; notes that the competition allowed pupils across Scotland, from P1 to S6, to creatively express their messages of inclusion and to celebrate diversity through drawing, poster making, poetry, textile design, music and short films; further notes with deep regret the timely relevance of Show Racism the Red Card’s campaign, coinciding as it did with the abhorrent racist abuse of three young England footballers, Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka following the European Championship final at Wembley; acknowledges that unfortunately, racism is still a devastating reality for many people across the UK; and thanks Show Racism the Red Card campaign and all other anti-racism campaign groups for the work they do.
