We are a brand new group, formed in September 2019, with brand new ideas to make sure that every child in Deanesfield knows their rights. Article 42 of the UNCRC relates to everybody having the right to know their rights.
Children as rights holders and adults as duty bearers need to work as a community to ensure our school is the best it can possibly be.
We want to make sure everyone knows there is an A, B, C, D and E of rights:
A is for All: Rights are universal, they are for all children;
B is for Birth: Everyone has these rights at birth;
C is for Cannot: Rights are inalienable - they cannot be taken away;
D is for Don't: Rights are unconditional - they don't have to be earned;
E is for Equal: Rights are indivisible - all rights are equally important.
As a group, we will make sure our learning environment reflects our amazing day to day learning, including learning about our rights.
If you are a child at Deanesfield and you have any thoughts or queries about children's rights, you can ask us - the Rights Rangers!
