Young children from across the island marched the streets of St Johns on Friday as part of activities to observe International Children’s Day 2022 under the theme “Inclusion for every child”.
Raising Royalty Pre-School shined bright with unique attire. The princes and princesses were clad in blue jeans and grey shirts with white gloves, crowns, and a gold wand to top it off.
The students along with their teachers braved the scorching heat in St Johns, along with other schools to show the world that they are important to the building of society.
The theme for International Children’s Day this year means that every child belonging to any community, or nationality is entitled to equal rights.
It also emphasizes the eradication of discrimination among children. Not only general rights, but a global society welcomes and offers space to children.
In many countries, International Children’s Day is celebrated on November 20. It is a day to celebrate childhood and to promote international togetherness and awareness among children worldwide.
International Children’s Day was first established in 1925 by the World Conference for the Well-being of Children in Geneva. The day was created to bring attention to the needs of children around the world and to promote their rights.
In 1954, the United Nations General Assembly recommended that the day be observed by all countries. International Children’s Day is now recognized as a day of global celebration.
There are many ways to celebrate International Children’s Day. Some schools hold special events and activities to mark the occasion. In some countries, children’s organizations hold marches and rallies to raise awareness of children’s rights.
International Children’s Day is also a day for adults to reflect on the role they play in children’s lives. Adults can show their support for children by volunteering in their community, donating to children’s charities, or simply spending time with kids.
