Childrens Parliament

Children’s Parliament is Scotland’s Centre for Excellence for children’s rights, participation and engagement, working with children from early years to age 14 across Scotland.

Children’s Parliament gives children the opportunity to voices their ideas, thoughts and feelings so that their concerns can be listened to and included in our social and political landscape.

Statement: ‘In the future, I hope that Scotland is a better place with no fighting and no sectarianism. Sectarianism is being rude and nasty to someone because of differences between your religions. I think it is particularly bad in

Scotland because of the rivalry between Celtic and Rangers, but it’s a bit stupid because you don’t have to be Catholic to support Celtic or Protestant to support Rangers. I’ve experienced sectarianism in my community before when people fight about which team is better, but they’re never going to agree.

I play football and I love it, but I don’t watch it because I don’t like that ‘my team is better – no, my team is better’ stuff that goes on. I don’t want to be caught in the middle of all the fighting.’ Kaitlin, P7
