Super Ambassadors is a scheme from the Children’s Commissioner for Wales that aims to promote children’s rights and the UNCRC in schools.
Children and young people have 42 rights under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).
These 42 rights give children and young people what they need to grow up happily, healthily and safely.
At Mountain Lane, we have two Super Ambassadors:
The Super Ambassadors have 3 main jobs:
- Inform other pupils in their school about the Commissioner and her powers
- Make sure other pupils know about about children’s rights under the UNCRC.
- Do special missions for the Commissioner in their school – these inform the work of our office and have a real impact on our work and on children’s rights in Wales
Special Mission Tasks
Each term the Super Ambassadors are given a 'Special Mission' task set by the Commissioner.
The Autumn term mission was to find out: 'How does Mountain Lane support Children's Well-being?'
Our Ambassadors spoke to staff members as well as pupils to find out what we do at the moment to support Children's well-being and what we could do to further improve this. They then fed this back in an assembly to the whole school.
Right of the month
Each month we will focus on a different article from the UNCRC as our 'Right of the month'.
January 2022- Article 29- 'To be the best that you can be.'
