The Super Ambassadors is a scheme from the Children’s Commissioner of Wales to promote children’s rights and the UNCRC in schools. Ysgol Aberporth is a UNICEF Rights Respecting School and has achieved the Silver status.
Pupils elect two Super Ambassadors at the beginning of every year to carry out three duties. These are to inform other pupils about the Commissioner and her powers, ensure other pupils know about children’s rights under the UNCRC and carry out special missions for the Commissioner in their school.
Super Ambassadors 2020 – 21 – Steffan Davies & Scarlette Legg
Criw y Porth – The School Council
The school council is group of students who are elected to represent the voice of all pupils and to think of ways to improve the school. The representatives speak their peers in order to get a balanced opinion of the pupils’ feelings and to report this back to the full School Council. The Council gives everybody feedback on the decisions of the Council through whole-school assemblies and in individual classes. This ensures that everybody is aware of the work of the Council. Throughout the year the Council discuss and arrange a host of activities such as fund-raising events, fun activities and lots more.
The Welsh Government believe that children and young people have the right to be safe, happy and healthy and to develop their skills and potential through education. Article 12 of the United Nation’s Convention on the Rights of the Child states that children and young people have the right to say what they think should happen and be listened to.
