A FORMER England and AC Milan football star visited Stourport High School to pass an anti-racist message to students.

Ex-Watford striker, Luther Blissett gave a day of workshops and question and answer sessions on behalf of anti-racist educational charity Show Racism The Red Card (SRTRC).

The event, which was also attended by students from Wolverley High School, ended with a creative arts session, creating punchy and eye-catching slogans and posters with an anti-racist message.

SRTRC aims to combat racism through enabling role models, who are predominately but not exclusively footballers, to present an anti-racist message to young people and others.

Wyre Forest and Hagley schools have collaborated several times on SRTRC events around the area – supported by The ContinU Trust’s Opening Doors Programme – such as when four local high schools sent a coach load of 30 students to Wolverhampton Football Club’s Molyneux stadium in February.
