UNA learning about Bunono School in Uganda

December 9, 2019 by Mrs Blair | Comments Off on UNA learning about Bunono School in Uganda

Today, we began learning about the needs of the children at Bunono school in Uganda. We are very interested in promoting the rights of all children.  UNA members couldn’t believe the daily challenges these children face and are determined to help.  We have gathered our thoughts on what we feel is unfair and will begin the process of planning how to take action and support.  We will post our plan once discussed further.

Pam Watson visit

October 8, 2019 by Mrs Blair | Comments Off on Pam Watson visit

Pam came in to teach UNA pupils how to provide gentle exercise to music for elderly people.  This is to support an event that UNA children will run after the holidays. The children were taught about the needs and abilities of the people they would be working with.  Music, warm up, main sessions and cool down was explained.  The children were able to understand the measures they needed to incorporate in order to keep their elderly members safe during exercise.  They fully understood the need for exercises that support independence in the elderly.  The children will learn about International Day for Older Persons and run this event.  Rotary members will escort elderly members from the Forres area by bus to join us on Thursday 31st October for our active event.
