Here at St Saint Joseph's, our children's views and ideas are very important to the direction of the school. Every child from Primary 1 - Primary 7 is part of a Pupil Committee which leads an aspect of school life. Our Committees provide great opportunities for pupils to develop a range of life skills and to grow as responsible citizens within their school, local and global communities.Children should not be separated from their parents unless they are not being properly looked after - for example, if a parent hurts or does not take care of a child. Children whose parents don't live together should stay in contact with both parents unless this might harm the child.
Children's Rights: We are a 'Rights Respecting School'
RIGHT OF THE WEEK
Speak out on Children's Right to Health! We have signed up to OutRight 2022/23 to empower our children and young people to realise their own rights, and speak out in support of the rights of all children. The campaign is focusing on empowering children and young people to learn how Climate Change threatens children's rights and how we can protect them!
Next week in COP 28 takes palce from the 30th of November to the 12th December. So our we will look at Article 24 and with a focus on a clean and safe environment and the things that we can do to stop climate change.
Article 24 - Health, water, food, environment
Children have the right to the best health care possible, clean water to drink, healthy food and a clean and safe environment to live in. All adults and children should have information about how to stay safe and healthy.
