As a school, we are on a journey to become a UNICEF Rights Respecting School. We will be focusing on the articles set out by UNICEF and incorporating them into our school values.
Our class charters, help us make the right decisions to ensure our classroom and school is a great place to be. As a class, we decided that we can ‘BEE’ anything we want to be. So created a our class charter to reflect this.
We then spoke about the articles and decided which were most important to us in creating a safe, happy and enjoyable place to learn. The articles we decided on are shown below and we have added what we will do to achieve them.
We signed our charter by adding ourselves into the Honey jars which means we will try our hardest to be the best we can be always.
