Strangford College, Newtownards


At Strangford we are delighted to have achieved our Silver UNICEF’s Rights Respecting School Award.  We have achieved this award through our Shared Education Project with Glastry and St Columba’s colleges.  Our students focused on 6 rights which pervade all that we do at Strangford and these were chosen by the students:

Article 2:

You have the right to protection against discrimination.

Article 12:

You have the right to have a say in things that affect you.

Article 16:

You should be able to keep things private unless the law says there is a reason you can’t.

Article 24:

You should get the best health care possible.

Article 28:

You have the right to an education.

Article 31:

You have the right to relax, play music, play sports and drama.


We are currently working towards our Gold UNICEF’s Rights Respecting School Award.
