HI Catherine, This has been very good timing for me. This is the second year I have taught Rights of the Child. The UNICEF resources are very good, for all stages. Perhaps we should start a discussion on what resources different countries use? Keep up the good work, Linda

Dear Cath and Ms. Linda Hi I wish to join you in the discussion for the resources available in schools for Child Rights.In which year Child rights are taught in your respective schools?Do school provide resources to facilitate teachers or teachers are to arrange the teaching aids for themselves ? What about child rights specially? Can we also procure resources from Unicef for our school? Regards Naina

Hi Naina, At my secondary school, Child Rights are taught in Year 7 (the first year of secondary school) as part of their PSHE (Personal, social and health education) lesson. It is also linked to work on Bullying. It is also done again in more depth in Year 10. I have some resources from UNICEF I can send you if you like? Best wishes Cath

Hi everyone, This is a great project and it’s really nice to see it developing so well. I just noticed this project on Human Rights that has been set up by Sopyan, a teacher from Indonesia. I thought you might be interested in contacting him to see if there is a way of sharing resources and idea between your projects if appropriate. http://www.elanguages.org/63992 All the best Chris

We have "Children in Need" the same day in the UK and raise money for disadvantaged children by doing lots of different activities like baking cakes etc. This year It is also the 20th Anniversary of the Convention of Rights of the Child. What do you do in your schools / countries on this day. What activities will you be doing this year? It would be great to know.
