From education to employment

Gower College Swansea celebrates the Diversity Fayre 2018

Staff and students at Gower College Swansea have enjoyed another vibrant and successful Diversity Fayre.

Among the entertainment on offer this year was African drumming, Brazilian martial arts, Bollywood Indian dance and street dance. Live music was also provided by students from the Llwyn y Bryn and Gorseinon Campuses.

Community partners in attendance included EYST, BAWSO, Chinese in Wales Association and the African Community Centre.

“Our annual Diversity Fayre is an opportunity for everyone to celebrate the cultural richness of our communities,” says the college’s Equality and Diversity Leader, Jane John. “With the help and support of our partnership organisations – who play such a crucial role in the success of the event – we can have a lot of fun while, at the same time, promoting awareness of really important issues that could affect everyone.”

In recent weeks, Gower College Swansea has also supported the Show Racism the Red Card campaign with students from Electrical Installation, Sport, ILS and Engineering taking part in workshops designed to tackle issues such as racism, Islamophobia and homophobia.

Show Racism the Red Card is the UK’s anti-racism educational charity. Established in 1996, it holds a ‘fortnight of action’ in Wales every October, with workshops aiming to educate and empower young people.
