Refugee week 2019- Article 22

Together as a community, Stoneyholme celebrated Refugee week. Through stories, we explored how it must feel to leave your home and family suddenly and travel to an unfamiliar place. The children were able to empathise with different emotions and scenarios. 



Article 22 (refugee children) If a child is seeking refuge or has refugee status, governments must provide them with appropriate protection and assistance to help them enjoy all the rights in the Convention. Governments must help refugee children who are separated from their parents to be reunited with them.


Article 30  (children from minority  or indigenous groups) Every child has the right to learn and use the language, customs and religion of their family, whether or not these are shared by the majority of the people in the country where they live.


Take a look at some of the learning we have been doing.
