On Monday, November 20 2017, Year 5 children at BISC-LP celebrated World Children’s Day. This is a day for children, led by children, all over the world to help save children’s lives, fight for their rights and help them fulfill their potential. We started off by leading a chain reaction of videos around Nord Anglia schools and we asked the first question which was ‘How could you help the people in your community work towards the sustainable development goals?’ We sent out this first question on Twitter to other Nord Anglia schools and they debated our question. They then created videos with their answers and asked a question to the next schools. We then answered the final question which was ‘Should the U.N. curb population growth?’ We debated in class, filmed our response and put it on Twitter.
We also learned all about the United Nations Global Goals. There are 17 Global Goals that countries in the United Nations want to achieve by the year 2030 such as no poverty and zero hunger.
We had a great day and learned lots about children all over the world. We realized how fortunate we are here at BISC-LP and how we should do things to help other children around the world.
