Our school council at Southwark Park are also our Rights Respecting Team. They have an active role in promoting children’s understanding of the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child. We meet every two weeks to discuss new ways we can advocate positive change for our own school community and wider community too. The team have also been sharing their knowledge of the Global Goals and have held whole school events to support children’s learning around this.
The Rights Respecting Team held their own workshops in all classes from Nursery to Year 6 and shared new games and resources with them. We also held an after school workshop for parents and carers where they could use these resources with their children.
In July 2019, the team organised a video screening of our TV club’s film ‘Taps and Toilets’. The film focusses on Global Goal 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation) and promotes being more responsible with water. The rights respecting team invited parents and carers and got everyone involved in learning about Global Goal 6.
