Children's Rights and Citizen UK Celebration Event: delivering letter to the Department of Education
Following some workshops with UCL students about children’s basic rights to education, housing and health a group from Year 5 travelled to Westminster for a celebration event with other schools who took part in conjunction with Citizens UK. Their artwork was displayed and the children themselves performed a powerful piece about children’s basic human rights. Mr. Wright also spoke brilliantly about the effects of a hostile environment on schools and families.
They then marched to the Department of Education and presented a report and a letter requesting a meeting with the Children’s Minister to discuss the issues which affect children at St. Mary’s and across the UK when the basic rights of housing, health and education are denied.
This is a real example of children being courageous advocates for society and we are very proud of them all.
