UNICEF Walk

uniced-300x199Hundreds of schools across the country took part in a UNICEF campaign which celebrated the 25th anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. These rights were created in order to better protect youngsters and improve a sense of community. Rights include providing what a child essentially needs to survive and grow in order to fulfil their true potential and these rights are given to every child regardless of age, race or gender.

Young pupils at Aberchirder Primary took part in a nationwide celebration of children’s rights by walking through the town on Thursday 20th November and delivering messages to local passersby about what the 1989 UN Convention meant to them and their individual learning. It was a new and exciting opportunity for the children to pass on what they had learnt about the convention as well as expressing their own views as to how things can be improved in the future.

The pupils have been praised for taking an interest into equal rights for all and it is encouraging to see young children taking an active stance in raising awareness for underprivileged children who still struggle all over the world. As teachers, we fully support the idea that every child should have the right to a professional education that helps them to grow as an individual.

Safety on the Internet

It can be great to encourage our children to use the computer in order to build on their IT skills as we live in a technology savvy world.  However, it is important to ensure the safety of our children when they browse the internet, especially as they cannot always be supervised by their parent or teacher.

Promoting internet awareness in our child is important as it makes them think before they access certain websites. Internet awareness works in very much the same way as Stranger Danger does in the physical world.  Therefore we need to make sure that our children know what is okay on the internet and what they should avoid.

Controls

There are special parental controls and add-ons provided by Google and other companies that will help ensure safe browsing for your children. You can install these and they pretty much work as a filter to remove anything not child appropriate or they prevent your child from accessing these inappropriate sites. However some websites only ask for a date of birth as proof of age, so the system is not unbreakable.

Whether you specialise in teaching IT or in general studies, Red Box Teachers will provides you with new job opportunities that are suited to you.
