We Care about Rights!
UNICEF celebrated its’ 30th year anniversary of the ‘Convention on the Rights of the Child’ last week and BVIS students ‘Know their Rights’. Wearing blue clothes last Wednesday, as a symbol for ‘Children’s Rights’, we all listened to our Year 1 students as they led us through the convention declarations during their Year Group assembly. In response to Article 29, that afternoon the students worked on their first NAE Global Campus project, a creative writing competition entitled ‘What does home mean to me?’ This competition, shared across the 66 NAE schools, provides a very significant framework for this important message:
Article 29 (adequate standard of living): Every child has the right to a standard of living that is good enough to meet their physical and social needs and support their development. Governments must help families who cannot afford to provide this.
