The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child states the rights of all children under the age of 18.
All children have the right to:
- Be cared for
- To protection from harm
- To participate
- To be free to express themselves
- To education and play
- To Survival and Development
- And to rehabilitation and care
The SRC then shared some facts about children around the world. Did you know that 168 million have to work instead of attending school? or that 5.4 million children die before they reach school age?
These facts and others set the ES thinking about what they could do. During morning meeting on Tuesday, every child wrote a promise onto a paper chain that is now displayed outside the ES office.
Come and see what the children would like to change about their world.
