“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
You have the right to an opinion and for it to be listened to and taken seriously.
One of the things the UNCRC does is to make it clear that human rights apply to children and young people, just as they do to adults. This is as true in Scotland as it is anywhere else in the world.
For example, Article 12 of the UNCRC says that children and young people have the human right to have opinions and for these opinions to matter. It says that the opinions of children and young people should be considered when people make decisions about things that involve them, and they shouldn’t be dismissed out of hand on the grounds of age. It also says children and young people should be given the information they need to make good decisions.
For these reasons, the young people at Fisherton Primary are all included in a pupil committee. We hold committee time on the first Monday of every month.
Please check the Pupil Groups pages for the important and exciting work of each committee.
