As a Rights Respecting school, our children regularly learn about their rights and the
responsibilities that are implied.
This month we are focussing on Article 38: Governments must do everything they
can to protect and care for children affected by war.
The rights within the UN Convention are indivisible – a child should have all of their
rights, all the time. Year 3 have been looking at The United Nations Convention on
the Rights of the Child and identified how many rights are affected when a child ‘s life
is disrupted by armed conflict or war. Year 3 designed some powerful posters to
promote peace. Imo said: ‘If there was peace all over the world, all children would be
safe from war and they would all have their rights.’
If there ever was a time when knowing your rights was so important, this is the time.
