Recently, the Rights Action group got together to make a playtime and lunchtime charter to make sure we are safe and happy in school. We looked at the UNCRC and decided on rights that meant most to us at playtime and lunchtime. Our charters got sent to a special sign maker to get made into big boards for the playground and gym hall. We are now going to get them up all around the school so pupils know their rights and how they can help others get their rights too. We had to be confident and present to the whole school at assembly to tell them about the rights charters and why we have them. The letters of the word RESPECT have been cut out and today we got all pupils in the school to sign their names on each letter so that they are in agreement to uphold these rights. Everyone got a band that said ‘we care, we listen, we act’. You might have seen the billboard posters about Inverclyde with the new campaign supporting children’s rights. By Lucy F
