Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA)

Dear parent/carer,

Please help me to learn about my right to Life, Survival and Development. (Article 6) of United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC)

                              We strive to give our children the best and always ensure that each child’s needs are at the centre of how we think about and plan for their unique development. With this in mind, we are taking the first steps of applying for a Bronze award in order to become a Rights Respecting School. (RRSA) This involves a whole school approach in educating our children and families what their rights are. To begin this process, we would appreciate if you could support your child to plant the daffodil bulb. When doing so, we ask that you discuss how to nurture and care for living things by giving food and water etc. and how you have the right to “Life, Survival, and Development. (Article 6) This will hopefully ensure your child understands they have the right to be cared for and nurtured in order to flourish and become a unique individual. Over time, we will be carrying out various activities in order to introduce different rights within the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). More information will follow. Thank you for your involvement.

Active Schools

Some of our children got the opportunity to take part in Active Schools. The children were able to listen and follow instructions and enhance their gross-motor and hand-eye co-ordination skills through a variety of games. The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience and being part of a group.  We would like to thank  Ryan and Murray  for enabling our children to take part.   More images are on our Twitter page.
