St Columba's High in Greenock has become the first mainstream high school in Scotland to win the Unicef Rights Respecting Schools Award

St Columba's High in Greenock has become the first mainstream high school in Scotland to win the Unicef Rights Respecting Schools Award at Level 1. The scheme is now running in more than 1,000 schools across the UK. Headteacher Jim Docherty said: "One of the greatest challenges that schools face is to define a clear set of values - not just rules - that has been developed with the full involvement of the school community and is upheld by pupils." Glenburn special school was the first school in the authority to achieve the award last December.
