Learning for Sustainability
Our school is just beginning a link with Sambari Primary in Tanzania. In order to start off our link, we had a whole school MADD (music, art, drama and dance) about Tanzania project to start our school session 2015-16.
Each class learned a little about the country, the language, culture and climate. We are looking forward to hearing a lot more. This link is part of the Twende Pamoja project which has been running for the past ten years between Scotland and Tanzania. Our cluster schools are all linked to a school in the same area.
For 2016-17 we are starting the year with a Peace project which is being run in conjunction with our partner schools in Tanzania.

RRSA – Rights Respecting Schools Award
Parsons Green has begun the journey towards becoming a Unicef Rights Respecting School. This involves learning about the UNCRC (United Nation Convention on the Rights of the Child) and what that means for ourselves and each other.
We have been using our Vertical Grouping Project to explore Article 31 – the right to play. It has involved mixing classes from P1 – P7 in our four houses and thinking about what the right to play looks like for us in our school. We have been learning lots of different types of games and getting to know others around the school better. This is helping us to have an even friendlier school built on positive relationships with each other.

Unicef – Rights Respecting Schools Award
We have been working towards our Green Flag Award with the children across the school engaging in a variety of different activities. This ranges from developing biodiversity within the Wildlife Garden, to recycling our paper waste and reducing food waste, to litter picking and thinking how we can all do our bit for the planet.
