A schoolgirl’s prize-winning anti-racism artwork is being entered in a national competition.
Ciel Ysabella De Guzman won the All Saints Catholic School competition for her drawing of four ethnically diverse woman merged into one face with the caption ‘we all belong to one human race’.
The prize piece will now compete in the National Show Racism the Red Card competition later this year.
The Wood Lane school’s assistant headteacher, Nick Pauro, said: “We are so proud of our Year 7s and how thoughtfully and creatively they have worked with their pastoral leaders.
“To see the passion in our pupils to have such values heard bodes well for all our futures.”
