I would like to introduce you to a very special school: for the past two and a half years, Cape Horn Elementary School in British Columbia has been developing a rights-respecting approach to all they do at the school.
Recently students and teachers of the school were invited to showcase their journey of becoming a Rights Respecting School at the British Columbia Representative For Children and Youth 2010 Summit. It was an incredible day as students used their voices to explain what becoming a Rights Respecting School meant to them. Highlights of the day can be found at http://www.rcybc.ca/Content/AboutRCY/2010Summit.asp.
This site includes a video in which students, teachers, school staff, and parents talk about the positive impacts becoming a Rights Respecting School has had on the school community.
If you would like more information about becoming a Rights Respecting School visit UNICEF Canada on the web.
