After an incredible year, Ruby, Lucy and Callum have helped to lead our school community through many opportunities to learn about their Unicef rights, through their Unicef rights and for their Unicef rights. Whether it has been leading Student Council in order to represent Pupil Voice, presenting Collective Worships about their rights, taking part in the Unicef Outright campaign webinar, writing to the COP26 leaders or making videos about being a Rights Respecting School, they have led by example and have shown incredible enthusiasm and commitment to their roles as Ambassadors in our school. Now they have taken their roles even further by campaigning to their local MP, Mr Gareth Davies, asking him to invest money in improving the bicycling facilities in and around their local community of Bourne. In a passionate and articulate letter, they have set out a list of action points they believe will help to make Bourne a ‘safer and healthier’ place for local children to live, clearly stating how their Unicef rights state would be met and how their ideas would contribute to the slowing down of Climate Change.
In their words, “One person can turn into a class, a class can turn into a school, a school can turn into a Community. By talking to each other, we can help raise awareness and help to do our bit so everybody can part of that action. By working together as a team, we can have a faster and bigger impact.” They are truly inspiring leaders, Agents of Change and a credit to their school and local community. Please watch their video to see how their vision for change could make an impact.
