18.9.19 RRS Group Meeting
This afternoon we discussed the #Activate Your Rights campaign.
“Young Scot, Children in Scotland and The Scottish Government want to work with a group of children and young people to take the lead in helping to promote their rights and shape the way Scotland understands and supports the rights of the child.
In November 2019 it will also be the 30th anniversary of the UNCRC being created so this is a fantastic time to get involved with this exciting project! That’s why we’re recruiting volunteers for #ActivateYourRights – a children and young people’s rights team that will help promote the The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) for children and young people in Scotland.”
Several P4-7 pupils were interested in applying for this. The closing date is Monday. The official website (including the application form) is here: Activate Your Rights Campaign
We also started to prepare for our next assembly, which we will deliver on Wednesday 2nd October. We listened to and discussed a Powerpoint presentation called “Different Families, Same Love” and then an E-book called: “Part of the Party.” We decided to use them both in the assembly. Five people will present the assembly. A group of P5-7s looked at the UNCRC articles which the story ties in with. A group of P1-4s started to make colourful lettering to update our RRS Group noticeboard in the hall.
Miss Mullin will meet with the presenters again tomorrow, so that we are all happy with what we are going to say and read!
18.9.19 European Day of Languages Assembly
UNCRC Article 2 Every child has the same rights regardless of their race, colour, sex, language, religion, politics, nationality, social class, place of birth or disability.
UNCRC Article 30 Every child has the right to practice their own culture, language and religion.
This afternoon, we co-presented an assembly with the Celebrations Committee. We explained what, when and why we are celebrating the European Day of Languages next week. We were really impressed with the number of different languages that people can say “Hello” or “Good afternoon” in. Lots of pupils have already decided which European flag colours they are going to wear for our school sponsored walk next Monday afternoon.
Our assembly is here: european day of languages assembly 18.9.19
The official website is: European Day of Languages 2019
Look what arrived today! We’re very proud to display our certificate and banner after all our work towards achieving this.
