We are a UNICEF Rights Respecting School

Bruce Wilkinson, the UNICEF Education Officer visited the school on the morning of 14th September to present our Rights Respecting School Award. We are the first school in the Falkirk Area to receive this award - it is a great achievement for the whole school community.
The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) works to make sure that children all over the world have access to Education and Health Care and are protected from exploitation, neglect 
and abuse. UNICEF states that 'A Rights Respecting School teaches children and young people that they have rights under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. From this starting point they also learn their responsibility to respect others' rights in all relationships in the community.'

Our Display on UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools was on show at Big in Falkirk as well as in Bo'ness Library. We had a very successful Exhibition over two days in June, at Bo'ness Town Hall, showing all the work that has been going on in School. The UNICEF Assessors visited the school and exhibition over these two days.
