Hopscotch Theatre ‘Rights of the Child’


Many thanks to Ross, Liam, Sophie and Jen from Hopscotch Theatre for a high quality production of ‘Rights of the Child’ that made learning about children’s rights fun and engaging for our 655 P1-P7 pupils on Thursday 10th March. Excellent feedback from pupils and staff and we congratulate the team on making the show so accessible and entertaining for all age groups. Bravo!

Feedback from Educational Experts

The show links to rights being being unconditional in a very clear and fun way! Rights Respecting Schools and Scottish Government/Education Scotland focus on the message that children do not need to do anything to have rights, which comes across excellently in Hopscotch’s ‘Rights of the Child’.

Hopscotch’s involvement in Scottish school pupils’ lives is a creative and stimulating experience. Education performances such as ‘Rights of the Child’ continue to develop the breadth of experience that Curriculum for Excellence is designed to deliver.
