RIGHTS RESPECTING AWARD
Today we launched OutRight. Our ambassadors did a fantastic job of doing this. We listened to a rights song, discussed what OutRight is and even did a little quiz at the end. OutRight is a campaign which gives children the vehicle in which to learn about their rights, educate others and shout about what is important to them.

Rights Secret Agents
Our RRSA have decided they would like to give out stickers to those that are respecting the rights. They will be looking out for children upholding the rights in the classroom, playground and the corridors. Each sticker entitles the receiver to one house point. Can you earn yourself a sticker?
