Rights Ambassadors 2016-7

Welcome to the Rights Ambassadors page.

In Holy Rosary Primary School we give the children many opportunities to have their voices heard. School Council and Steering Group are just two examples of this. 

This year we are very lucky to have such an enthusiastic group of children from Primary 4 to Primary 7 who are responsible representatives of their class. 

The boys and girls have been very busy this year. This year the Rights Ambassadors:

  • Renewed our Canteen Charter agreements
  • Designed a vibrant new theme for the charter
  • Explained what their peers discussed during Class Council meetings each month
  • Chose winners for Key Stage 2 Line Up Challenge every break and lunch time
  • Created videos presenting the Article of the Month for the school website 
  • Investigated the CRC 3 I's and 2 U's. 

The Steering Group:

  • Completed a Pupil Focus Group
  • Prepared and delivered Outright assemblies for Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 
  • Ensured the language used at assemblies was differentiated to suit the age groups.
  • Wrote the school Mission Statement in child friendly language
  • Created an iMovie explaining the Mission Statement for the school website 
  • Chose winners for Key Stage 1 Line Up Challenge every break and lunch time
  • Updated the Board of Governors on all our rights work
  • Handed out and collected staff and pupil questionnaires 
  • Suggested which articles should be included in the school PDMU policy
  • Review schools policies in line with the CRC

The Rights Respecting School Council 2015-6

Welcome to the School Council’s page. We recently voted to change the name of our council to Rights Ambassadors. So, welcome to the Rights Ambassadors page!

Each Rights Ambassador has an important role:
Chair: Lara (P5) – I open and close the meeting, follow the agenda, help everyone to participate and encourage everyone to keep to the point.
Vice Chair: Declan (P7) - I hand out the agenda to council members and help the Chair make decisions. If the Chair is absent I take over her duties.
Secretary and Vice Secretary – Simon (P6) and Finn (P5) - We take notes during the meeting and record key points during our discussion.
Treasurer and Vice Treasurer: Deborah (P4) and Alyssa (P6) – We keep a record of money collected, carefully count money and sort into money bags.
Class Representatives: Oliver, Deborah and Sebastian (P4), Eabha, Ellie-Rose, Lara, Finn, Beth and Niamh (P5), Simon and Alyssa (P6), Dylan and Declan. (P7)

We meet once a month to feedback ideas that arise during monthly class council meetings. It is very important that we all keep an open mind, we give everyone time to speak, we listen to the opinions of others and we take part in discussions. Just as article 12 states, all children have the right to have their opinions heard and taken seriously.

We are preparing for a busy year as we work towards the Level 2 Rights Respecting Schools Award.
All children will become more familiar with the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) through our 'Right of the Month' school display. We will continue to develop our links with Koulla Yiasouma at NICCY and the School Council at St Paul's Primary School. The Rights Ambassadors will help prepare all children to speak out about their rights during UNICEF's Outright Day in November 2015.
