On Friday 14th December pupils and staff took part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day. The whole school put on their festive knitwear in order to raise money for Save the Children.
As ambassadors for children’s rights, we are proud to say we raised £240 which will go to Save the Children, making sure every child, no matter where they are born, has essentials like food and water, healthcare, education, protection and shelter.
Thank you all for your support to make Christmas Jumper Day a success – we surely made the world better in our sweaters!
On Friday 23rd November, the Rights Respecting Ambassadors visited Norton Rose Fulbright for their annual Pupil Parliament. During our fantastic time there, we asked questions to four panellists about topics that were important to us. The topics that we discussed were: Crime and Anti-Social Behaviour, Sustainable Development and Human Rights and Equality. We asked questions such as: How can we encourage people to stop using plastic and why is there still religion discrimination in the 21st century?
Eight schools were invited in total and we were put into mixed groups to discuss the feedback given back by the panellist. After lunch (which was delicious) we presented our ideas to the rest of the schools.
