Children's charter

At the start of the year we asked children to really think about what rights they feel they should have whilst as school, and also what their responsibilities are.  We are very proud of the ideas they came up with.  We have put them together to create a ‘Children’s Charter’ (see below). 

Kerr Mackie Children’s Charter

  • We have the right to be respected, and the responsibility to listen to and care for those around us to make sure we are showing respect to them

  • We have the right to learn to our full potential, and the responsibility to behave in way that means we are not disturbing the learning of others

  • We have the right to equipment that will help us with our learning, and the responsibility to treat all equipment with respect and not damage it for others

  • We have the right to be healthy, and the responsibility to make smart choices with our food and drink, and join in with as much physical activity as we can

  • We have the right to be treated equally, and the responsibility to treat everyone else the same as ourselves

Toilet Twinning

 

Toilet Twinning:

Year 6 are supporting the Toilet Twinning charity this year. Our aim Is for each of our toilets in school to be €˜twinned€™ with a sanitation project overseas, in a community that is less fortunate than our own.

We are truly dedicated to the cause, and extremely enthusiastic, and through fun days, communicating with local businesses, raffles and stationery sales we have rasied a whopping £1,060 so far- meaning we have already twinned 18 of our 41 toilets.

We have many others plans in the pipeline (!) and are storming towards reaching our total of £2460 by the end of the year.

We always love receiving ideas for fundraising, and love donations even more- so if you're interested, come to speak to any of the Year 6 children, or Mrs Harrand, Holly class teacher.

Watch this space!
