Rights Respecting Schools Association (R.R.S.A)
The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) sets out the rights of every person under 18 and how those rights should be met. These include:
• The right to good quality health care, clean water and nutritious food.
• The right take part in a wide range of cultural and artistic activities
• The responsibility of governments to protect children from dangerous work that might harm their health or education.
The Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA) is an initiative run by UNICEF to raise the awareness of children’s rights.
At Trinity Primary we are working towards the Level 1 Rights Respecting School Award.
We embed the CRC into our curriculum as widely as possible through the learning and teaching in all areas of the curriculum, especially in our international and global citizenship education and through Trinity Together.We have also raised awareness of UNICEF and the Rights Charter through our sharing learning coffee mornings this year.
Trinity Primary’s ‘Day for Change’:
This is a UNICEF initiative to help raise awareness of UNICEF and the work it does. It is a day of fun and fundraising for UNICEF. At our coffee mornings, the children from the four Trinity houses came up with a number of ideas for day for change. On Friday June 12th children can put their ideas into practise and come dressed as one of the teachers, change their hair style, or change their clothes back to front etc…
