The 8th – 12th May was Rights Respecting Week at ALNS. Our first one since become a Level 2 school earlier this year. During this week EVERY lesson focused on making one of the 42 Articles of the UNCRC (The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child) explicit to our students and reminding ourselves just why we are a Level 2 school.

During this week students experienced a wide range of lessons exploring the articles which included song writing using the articles in Music, Child soldiers in Drama and the Right to privacy in Computing.

RRSA week ensures that the articles are made clear throughout the curriculum to raise student’s awareness of their rights and how they are applied throughout the world.

On Thursday 11th May the RRSA Ambassadors organised Admirals Got Talent to raise money for local charities and the orphan school we support in the Gambia.

It was an amazing evening. The theme of the night was Children’s Rights and there were several presentations about the work and values of UNICEF.
