Balwearie High School

Rights Respecting School

 

Balwearie High School was awarded the Bronze: Rights Committed award in September 2018. Progress is being made towards our Action Plan for Silver: Rights Aware, including our first ever Rights Day that was held on Thursday 23rd May 2019. On this day departments delivered a lesson to S1, S2 and S3 pupils about rights and/or the UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development.
