Unicef Rights Respecting Schools

Unicef- Rights Respecting Schools Award

The Rights Respecting Schools Award puts children’s rights at the heart of schools in the UK.

Darnhall Primary School is proud to be working with UNICEF to create a safe and inspiring place to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive.

UNICEF's Rights Respecting Schools Award embeds these values in daily school life and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens.

Shoe Share 2019

We are taking part in the shoe share campaign. Please bring any of your old or unwanted pairs of shoes to school to help UNICEF to help children all around the world. Please ensure that the shoes are in relatively good condition – so no holes or broken soles.

A huge thank you to everyone who donated their unloved shoes. We managed to raise a whopping 256 pairs of shoes!! The staff and Clarks shoe store were delighted. 

 

At Darnhall we are always looking at different ways to learn and support other children around the world. In December we had a special visitor from Water Aid who delivered an assembly to all our children. From this assembly lots of classes held discussions around Article 6: The right to grow up healthy.

Every week at Darnhall we explore one of the articles from the CRC - The Convention for the Rights of the Child. 

This week we are looking at Article 30: 

Article 30: Minority or indigenous groups, culture, language and religion.

 

Every child has the right to learn and use the language, customs and religion of thier family ehther or not these are shared by the majority of people in the country where they live.

Some ideas and activities to help you understand this article. 

Can you find out how to say ‘”Hello, how are you?”’ in 5 different languages.

Do you know any traditional dances? Research these safely online or ask a friend or grown up to teach you and practise the steps.

Find 10 characters from your favourite books. Do they come from a range of cultures or are they all just like you?

Keep a food and drink diary for the week. What cultures do your food and drink come from? Which are your favourites?

If the World were Represented by 100 people this is What it Would ...
