United Nations Convention for the Rights of the Child 

Article 30 – Children have the right to learn about and practice their own culture…

On Friday 10th June pupils enjoyed  coming to school dressed up in costumes from their countries.  We held a special Assembly where the Primary 3 to 5 Highland Dance class performed some of the dances they had learned over the last few months.  Pupils from every stage were able to share with the rest of the school some interesting facts about their countries.
