REFUGEE WEEK 15.06.15

 

Some children from Year 4 were invited to think about the journeys made by migrants and asylum seekers.  They were given time to reflect upon and discuss their own journeys, the difficulties they have encountered and how they have overcome them.  A short video clip called My Journey and a slide show of some Aboriginal Art inspired them to create their own journey paintings.

Examples of things Rights Respecting Children do:

SPEAK OUT!

In July 2015, children were given the opportunity to reacquaint themselves with the Articles in the CRC and discuss with each other their relevance and importance to children.  Each child then wrote a statement and drew a picture to illustrate how important it is to them that their Rights are kept safe.  These statements have been sent to The Government  prior to the launch of their consultation about possible changes to the Human Rights Act.
