What is World Children’s Day?

World Children’s Day, or Universal Children’s Day, is celebrated on November 20th. It is a date of great importance: in 1959, the UN General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child. It is also the date in 1989 when the UN General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Since 1990, World Children’s Day also marks the anniversary of the date that the UN General Assembly adopted both the Declaration and the Convention on children’s rights. The day offers each of us an inspirational entry-point to advocate, promote and celebrate children’s rights, translating into dialogues and actions that will build a better world for children.

How did we celebrate World Children’s Day at our College?

World Children’s Day was celebrated in various ways at our schools.

Primary:

Students at our Primary School attended two dedicated online assemblies prepared by Ms Roberta Camilleri, where they were invited to reflect on the right to education and the importance of World Children’s Day.

They also wrote a note of thanks to the Commissioner for Children and included some suggestions to further protect children in Malta and in other countries. They also wrote their wishes for their future and our country. We are so pleased that the Commissioner has received our children’s work! 

Secondary:

During nature class, Ms Leona Mifsud invited her students to think about the question ‘Do children have rights?’, and then discussed the right to a clean environment, as the children printed their own world and leaf using balloon and leaf printing.

Mr Ronald Formosa invited Form 5 students to reflect and write an essay focusing on the role of adults in safeguarding children’s rights. We will be publishing some of these essays in the near future.

The Modern Languages Department are also hatching up something exciting in the coming weeks… so watch this space!
