On 20th November 2019, our students marked the 30th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child at an all-school assembly. The school’s Rights Council presented some of their work from the Unicef Children’s Summit last month and everyone sang the song: “Right to be loved”. The children also learned about the Right of Freedom of Speech.
In October 2019, the European School Copenhagen embarked on the journey to becoming a Rettighedsskole (Rights School), which involves teaching the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and putting it into practice. Rettighedsskoler is a Unicef initiative and the goal is to develop happy, thriving and empowered children.
