Tranquil Treehouse – Article 24
For the last 6 weeks, Nadia from Tranquil Treehouse has been coming into classes from Years 1-6 to complete some mindfulness and reflection activities. These activities have shown the children how to relax, reflect on their strengths and weaknesses and to help them manage emotions. This has been in light of lockdown and to help the children to settle back into school life.
This has been a tremendous success and has really helped our children achieve their right in Article 24 – every child has the right to the best health and health care.
Here are some photographs of the children enjoying their time with Nadia during the last few weeks.
The Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA) is awarded by Unicef and focuses on promoting children’s rights within school.
Below is a list of the Rights of the Child agreed by the UN. These are the rights we are working with towards our Rights Respecting School Award.
Unicef works with schools in the UK to create safe and inspiring places to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive. The 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.
Using the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) as our guide, we will work with all children and adults in our school to make more people aware of these rights. We have achieved the Bronze level of this award.
Working towards this level means that the children will be aware not just of their own rights, but of all children around them in school, in Britain and around the world.
