UNICEF World Children’s Day

Mr. Ben Holman

On Friday we marked UNICEF World Children’s Day with a non - uniform day whereby we all came dressed in blue to symbolise this special day. Amy Bater who is our Global Campus Lead has spent the last month raising awareness of this important and special annual event amongst students and teachers.

 

 

 

 

In this modern age it seems that we have a day to celebrate everything, covering all sorts of professions and causes but this day is by the far the most important in the calendar of any school, international or national!

 

 

 

 

There is no doubt that the last, almost, two years now have had a profound impact on the way we go about our daily lives with previously taken for granted social interaction firmly taken away by quarantine. What it has done is show just how unequal the world still is and the fact that the poorest and most vulnerable children have been hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic is no coincidence.

 

 

 

 

Inequality still affects the rights of every child in different ways from climate change, education and mental health, to ending racism and discrimination, children and young people are now raising their voices on the issues that matter to their generation and calling for adults to create a better future. 

 

At BCB we take student leadership very seriously one example, the Student Council recently deciding on a Meatless Monday for lunchtimes in order to draw attention to the environmental impact of eating meat such as beef. We the adults are the current custodians of the planet but arguably not doing a very good job so let the ‘young adults’ have a say in shaping their own future! 

 

World Children’s Day this year is crucial for us adults to listen and recognise children’s ideas and demands for a reimagined, better world!
