Crossroads pupils who were chosen to speak online to the children and young people's commissioner.

Pupils at Crossroads Primary School were given the opportunity to talk online to Bruce Adamson, the children and young people's commissioner for Scotland, and find out about his work.

The commissioner’s main responsibility is to promote and protect the rights of children and young people in Scotland.

It was quite an achievement as Crossroads was the only primary chosen in the Highland Council area. It is a bronze level Unicef Rights Respecting School and is working towards its silver award.

The primary 4-7 children were able to ask plenty of questions. They learned that Mr Adamson is commissioner for six years and that most European countries have a similar role.

Head teacher Pauline Pearson said: "There were lots of great ideas, including using rhymes and films, and teaching one right at a time using a Right of the Fortnight."
