CHILDREN'S WEEK 2017
Article 29 - United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child
'Education should develop each child's personality and talents to the full.
It should encourage children to respect their parents,
their cultures and other cultures.'
Activities and events organised for Children's Week by individuals, groups and organisations, focus on
the right of children to enjoy childhood
the celebration of children and young people
highlighting their skills, achievements and needs
acknowledging and supporting parents, carers and all those associated with the well being of children and young people
This fits naturally with the concept of community, living and working together for the benefit of our children and young people. The role of volunteers is significant in this work.
