Monday (November 20) is World Children’s Rights Day, celebrated on the anniversary of the adoption of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. On this occasion, children from kindergarten No. 28 visited the Opole town hall. – We want to teach children from an early age that they have their rights – said the organizers of the campaign.
Children from kindergarten No. 28 made the rainy and gray day in the Opole town bustle and cheerful. This is because a large group of preschoolers in Opole visited the Opole town hall.
The little heroes and heroines, despite the unfavorable weather, with blue balloons in their hands, marched joyfully to the Opole town hall, where they were warmly received by Przemysław Zych, vice-president of Opole.
The children visited the office on the occasion of World Children’s Rights Day, which is celebrated on November 20.
The action, in the form of a colorful march, was organized for the second time by kindergarten No. 28.
– Due to the tragic events involving children that have recently occurred in our country, we have decided to organize the celebration of this special day with greater pomp. We want our children to know that they have their rights. We tell them what they are entitled to, of course in a way adapted to their age, we explain where they can look for help and we hope that over the years their awareness will become even greater – says Justyna Zasieczna, a teacher from Public Kindergarten No. 28 in Opole.
During the meeting in the Opole town hall, it was clear that the action was already producing first results because when asked about their rights, the children said directly:-
– We have the right to safety, to love and to family – said the preschoolers.
The “blue” march to the town hall is not the only element of Opole’s celebration of World Children’s Rights Day. On this occasion, UNICEF representatives came to the Public Primary School No. 31 at Krzanowicka Street in Opole and celebrated World Children’s Rights Day together with students and teachers.
