We are a UNICEF Rights Respecting School. This means that we place the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of all we do. Children are taught about their rights and how to respect them. They learn that their behaviour can impact on the rights of others in positive and negative ways. They learn that although these rights should be equal for children across the world, in practical terms this isn't always the case.
Year 3 looked at where our food comes from.
We wondered if everyone who helps bring us a banana gets treated fairly.

20th November - 25th Anniversary of the UNCRC
On the 20th November, children at Cranbourne celebrated the 25th anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. To show support for the UNCRC, Year 4 decided to create Podcasts to explain why the Articles in the Convention are important to us.
Please follow the link to listen to Year 4's great podcasts on their class page.

As part of our school’s aims to promote a happy and successful school, we have gained recognition as a “Rights Respecting School”. This is an award which is given to schools on behalf of UNICEF.
UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights. In 1989, governments worldwide promised all children the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.
