At Rosary Park Primary School, Branxton we invite children, parents and staff into a relationship with Jesus Christ. It is through our teaching of Religion, our engagement with the Sacraments and our witnessing of the Gospel story that our children will come to know Jesus within an authentic Catholic community. We invite parents, as the first educators of your children in faith, to be a critical part of this journey.
20 November is UNICEF World Children's day. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Children consists of 41 articles, each of which details a different type of right. A common approach is to group these articles together under the following themes:
1. ‘Survival rights: include the child’s right to life and the needs that are the most basic to existence, such as nutrition, shelter, and adequate standard of living and access to Medical services’.
2. ‘Development rights: include the right to education, play, leisure, cultural activities, and access to information and freedom of thought, conscience and religion’.
3. ‘Protection rights: ensure children are safeguarded against all forms of abuse, neglect and exploitation, including special care for refugee children; safeguards for children in the criminal justice system; protection for children in employment; protection and rehabilitation who have suffered exploitation or abuse of any kind.’
4. ‘Participation rights: encompass children’s freedom to express opinions to have a say in matters affecting their own lives, to join associations and to assemble peacefully. As their capacities develop, children should have increasing opportunity to participate in the activities of society, in preparation for adulthood.’
‘Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these’. Matthew 19:14
