Change for Children!

The school observed World Day Against Child Labour on 12th June  with a range of activities that  highlighted the need to take a united stand against the exploitation of children world-wide. Students of both the primary and secondary wing swung into action as the day began, with students organizing powerful morning assemblies that portrayed the plight of children forced to work under untenable conditions.

Our Grade III students performed a dance that showed measures we can take to eradicate child labour while our Grade IX students enacted a skit they had produced to show the suffering experienced by innocent children who are directed to work for their survival. Both assemblies saw facilitators educate students on the work of the Child Rights Commission and the need to stand up for these exploited children. The awareness campaigns by the students made it loud and clear that every child enjoys every single universal human right in addition to the right to play, education, loving parents and right to live in safety without threats.
