Rights Respecting Parliament

Our Year 5 Learning Ambassadors made history on Friday the 25th of January when they attended the first ever Rights Respecting Children’s Parliament at Manchester Enterprise Academy. Bowker Vale was one of fourteen schools representing children’s views about Global Goals and their links to the UNICEF Rights Respecting Articles. It was very interesting to hear from Councillor Rahman and MP Mike Kane.

In their groups, the children worked with children from other schools to decide which Global Goal was the most important to them. History was made when the children voted on the top five Global Goals which they intend to campaign about. The next step will be to decide on which of those Global Goals children at Bowker Vale would like to do something about and begin to think about a campaign. Well done everyone!
