We are still collecting old uniforms to sell. We have been selling uniforms at the Christmas Fayre, Parents’ Evening and hope to continue this at future school events. The uniforms range from school uniforms to Brownie uniform to Dancing outfits! Please donate any uniform items to the school office.
Eaglesham Primary School has been awarded ‘Fairtrade School Status’ by the Fairtrade Foundation!
Eaglesham Primary School has been working very hard to become a Fairtrade School. This means we try to use Fairtrade products wherever possible, we learn about how global trade works and why Fairtrade is importnant and we take action for Fairtrade in the school and the wider community. A ‘Fairtrade School’ is a school that is committed to Fairtrade.
The whole school have been getting involved in Fairtrade assemblies ‘Bake offs’, Fairtrade learning opportunities and buying Fairtrade products. We participated in Fairtrade Fortnight and had lots of fun while learning about important issues surrounding Fairtrade.
What is the Rights Respecting School Award?
UNICEF UK is pioneering an initiative in UK schools called the Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA). The award scheme started in 2004 and is running in more than 1000 primary and secondary schools in England , Wales , Scotland andNorthern Ireland . One of the greatest challenges that schools face is to define a clear set of values – not just rules – that has been developed with the full involvement of the school community and is actively upheld by pupils. UNICEF UK ’s RRSA initiative helps schools to use the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) as the values framework that enables this to be achieved.
