World Children’s Day, November 20th, is a moment for the world to come together to help build a world where every child is in school, safe from harm and can fulfil their potential.
It is the day when the most widely ratified human rights treaty in history, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child was adopted. It’s a day to celebrate progress made for children, hold leaders to account on promises made to children and address the work that still needs to be done.
Celebrate in your school with our special assembly. The presentation is 20 minutes long and is suitable for all primary and lower secondary.
The aim with this assembly is to ‘paint the big picture’ that World Children’s Day provides a great opportunity to celebrate that all children around the world have rights as outlined in the Convention on the Rights of the Child and UNICEF’s role in upholding children’s rights.
