P6F at Auchterellon School made up the song which tells the story about Children’s Rights.

The whole school have been learning about Children’s Rights and the work that UNICEF do all over the world.

At the beginning of term, the class discussed why UNICEF made the Children’s Charter and decided it was because there were too many children that weren’t looked after properly.

On two large pieces of paper titled “Too Many Children” and “We have the Right” the children all wrote down a word or phrase that the titles meant to them.

P6F Teacher at the school, Mrs Fraser combined all the views together and created a song with her daughter, Amy putting together the music for the tune.

On behalf of the class, Daniel McKean and Amy Petrie said: “We were excited by the sound we had created and showed it to Mr Cordiner and Mrs McGowan our head and depute head- who thought we should share it with our school.

“A man called Sam came to the school and made a professional recording of our song - with the whole school singing it.

“We hope everyone in Ellon will lookout for posters and information about how to download the song, then spread the word to all their friends and families and help us raise money for this great charity.”
