#globalgoalsweek P4-7 Assembly 23.9.16

On Friday 23rd September 2016 at the P4-7 Assembly we reflected on the messages of Global Goals Week and how we can plan to take action together on the Sustainable Development Goals for 2030. Last year our main focus was on Goal 1 No Poverty and Goal 11 Reduced Inequalities. We also explored Goal 13 Climate Change and Goal 5 Gender Equality.

Pupils had been asked by The Children and Young People’s Commissioner for Scotland, Tam Baillie, what they would wish for if he gave them a magic wand. He explained that their wishes were ‘promises’ already in place in the UNCRC. We looked at some of the children’s suggestions and how the Global Goals for Sustainable Development can help achieve their wishes:

Each of our Pupil Groups – Pupil Council, Eco Group, JRSOs, P7 Captains and Digital Leaders – is making plans for the year and classes were encouraged to share their ideas with their Class Reps so that we can work together in school to take action.

P4 and P7 pupils Alba and Samara gave extraordinary performances on piano. Samara practises for many hours every day and Laila told us how she has worked hard to achieve so many Tae Kwon Do medals.

Mylo and Christopher confidently introduced our brand new iTeach Digital Leaders programme and explained how to get involved.

We celebrated lots of individual pupil achievements, including a recent win for P6 Team at Boroughmuir RFC and Pedal for Scotland medals for siblings Sam, Lizzy and Quinn.
