Pupils from Primary 1 to Primary 7 joined for a Community Group meeting on 6th November 2015. We are participating in the Outright campaign 2015.
OutRight is a special campaign for Rights Respecting Schools that empowers you to speak out about children’s rights and celebrate the anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
- We learned about Malala who was shot in 2012 by the Taliban for speaking out on girls’ rights to education in Pakistan.
- She continues to campaign for girls’ education and for peace.
- P6 went to a pupil premiere on Wednesday and they shared some of their learning with us.
Happy, healthy and safe
- We discussed and wrote down ideas of what we need to keep us happy, healthy and safe.
- Together we shared these and decided which ones were wants and needs.
We learned about humanitarian emergencies around the world and how they affect children and young people’s rights.
We used photos illustrating humanitarian emergencies around the world to discuss what we could see in the photo and what rights were being affected and denied to children.
We ended our Community Group meeting discussing what we can do to spread the word and join in the Outright campaign. Our aim is to raise our voice and views about the importance of promoting and protecting children’s rights in humanitarian emergencies around the world. We’ll keep you updated!
