Event shows work to combat racism.

SCHOOLS, education staff and community groups are taking part in a series of events to combat racism.

The Warwickshire Against Prejudice event will be held at the Manor Hall Teachers' Centre in Sandy Lane, Leamington, from 4pm to 6pm on Wednesday.

It will show off the work carried out by schools in the county, including Black History Month and Holocaust Memorial Day.

A pack has been prepared for schools, with advice on race equality, including admissions, attendance, exclusions, and the curriculum, plus relationships with parents and communities, school leadership and staff training.

Organiser Rohini Kochar, race equality education officer for Warwickshire County Council, said: "There is already excellent intercultural work taking place in many Warwickshire schools.

"The challenge now is to build on this solid foundation to go from a multi-cultural perspective - where pupils learn about different cultures - to an anti-racist approach, where schools can demonstrate how they pro- actively deliver a curriculum which is relevant to every student.

"Education is a powerful force for tackling the root causes of racial prejudice."
