On the last day of term the whole school took part in a Rights Respecting Assembly. All classes assembled in the hall to take part in a Right Hunt. Firstly though, some of the bus drivers and escorts handed out a very generous cheque to the school after having completed the Edinburgh to Glasgow cycle! Many thanks for their great donation.
The pupils then were led through the story of We Are Going On a Rights Hunt by the Rights Respecting Group. The story took us on a journey exploring 5 of the Articles from the United Nations Rights of the Child. For each article an activity was provided for the children, for example, for the Right to Know Who We Are, the pupils all chose their own photo and looked at themselves in the mirror. For the Right to have a Nationality, the pupils came and chose their flag. Everyone really enjoyed taking part in the activity and it is hoped to take the activity out to the woodland when the better weather comes in.
We are currently working towards our Rights Respecting School level 2 award, after completing our Level 1 in February. The group meets monthly to plan activities to bring the rights alive for our pupils.
