Holy Evangelists' receives the Unicef UK's Rights Respecting Schools award

Holy Evangelists’ Primary School and Nursery Unit, Twinbrook under the leadership of Paula McWilliams PD&MU and Rights Respecting School Coordinator, has been awarded the prestigious Rights Respecting Schools Silver Award.

The Assessor commented on there being a strong commitment to and enthusiasm for RRS across the whole school community of adults and children. Children could talk about the UNCRC and the rights that they hold along with ‘all children across the world; they’re not just for us‘. Children talked about a range of articles that they considered important to them such as the right to be heard, be safe, learn, be healthy and ‘kept away from conflict’. The latter resonates with them due to the recent arrival of children from other countries, including Syria. This has made them even more aware that rights such as Art.22, 38 and 39, have been denied these children. It is clear that the children know that it is adults, ‘including governments’, who are the Duty Bearers.
