Every child cares!

Thank you for your donations to the community cohesion project! We received  lots of food and toiletries from the whole school community. We will be taking the donations to our local homeless shelter on Monday the 3rd of April.

We made our very own special bags with inspirational messages to take the donations in.

We hope they like it.😄

Kidzania

The School Ambassadors were rewarded for their hard work and commitment this year with a trip to Kidzania – a mini city where children can participate in role-playing adventures. They can have different jobs, such as fire-fighter, mechanic or television presenter, or enroll in university or other enriching courses, like painting or animation school!

The day was a great chance for the children to think about what they would like to do when they are older and aspire to successful, rewarding jobs.

Here are some photos of our brilliant day out.

Geneva: video diary from our ambassador

Tufa

As you probably know, we were recently represented in Geneva, Switzerland by our Rights Respecting Ambassador. Travelling with CRAE, we went to meet with the UN Comittee on the Rights of the Child (CRC) to deliver the special report CRAE have been working on.

While in Geneva, our ambassador was asked during a video diary to answer some questions…

Enjoy!

If you would like to know more about the project, have a look at this clip:

Hi everyone,
Here is a message from our Rights Respecting Ambassador in Geneva:
‘We have arrived in Geneva for the CRAE’s project for RRSA.

We have met with the UN committee to discuss the rights of the child, making lots of suggestions.
We have had our voices heard on subjects like respect and discrimination, children in care and voting rights for children. We said that children should he more educated about politics and be heard more by government.

Our whole group had been working hard and has been very vocal about children’s rights and encouraging the UN to treat children equally and show us the respect we deserve.

The week so far has been amazing but very hard work! One of our members said “When we spoke to the committee, we felt very excited to be heard but also nervous. We had to answer lots of very difficult questions about our See It Sat It Change it report.”
We will be flying back to London very proud and very happy at our great effort. We hope that our recommendations will be acknowledged and that we can bring about a positive change.
Take a look at the CRAE’s blog site and twitter page to find out more!

We can’t wait for them to return and look forward to hearing more.

Your School Ambassadors

Goodbye for another year

It’s that time of year when we start to think about saying goodbye to certain people and things. As the Summer Term draws to a close, it is time to say a big thank you to our school councillors. They have been a dedicated and hard-working team, giving up lunchtimes and play times to attend meetings, to run fruit tuck shop and to organise some fantastic whole school events. On top of all that, they listened to your opinions and brought their notes along to every meeting.

We celebrated all that they have achieved this year by holding a party for each group; one for school councillors from Years 1-3, and another for school councillors from Years 4-6. We played games, listened to music, had a snack, and of course, we reflected on all that we have accomplished since September.

Here are some of our highlights:

super hero day (fundraising for Children in Need)
Red Nose Day
helping to judge the dress the door competition on World Book Day
running fruit tuck shop
attending Pupil Parliament

So, if you see one of our lovely school councillors, don’t forget to say a big THANK YOU for all of their hard work this year making sure that children’s voices are heard.

Know your Rights Competition!

Hi everyone,

We, the Rights Respecting School Ambassadors, would like to challenge you to learn as many UNCRC articles (rights) as possible.
