Ethical Values Through Respecting Children’s Rights
Tanglin is the first school outside of the United Kingdom to accredited by UNICEF as a Rights Respecting School. The RRSA is a moral framework based on 54 articles of the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child, with the aim of embedding children’s human rights into the school’s ethos and culture. The RRSA reflects the school’s core values of Respect, Responsibility and Purpose, and provides meaningful learning opportunities, sparks interest in global issues and, most importantly, empowers children to exercise their rights, and to be responsible, active citizens. Through the RRSA, students at Tanglin learn that many children globally do not have access to their rights. This awareness has allowed the children to question and develop a keen interest in global events that raise rights issues. These include World Religion Day, International Day of the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, Autism Awareness Day and more.
