Super Ambassadors work in primary schools all over Wales to promote the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the role of the Children’s Commissioner for Wales. Pupils elect 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.
The scheme has been championed by the Children’s Commissioner for Wales to promote children’s rights and the UNCRC in primary and secondary schools. It aims to encourage pupils and their teachers to think about what rights are important. The scheme provides inspiring ideas to embed rights at school, home and with public organisations such as local authority departments working with children and young people.
Our Super Ambassadors this year are Olivia, Angus and Wil.
