A minute with Mme Amy...re UNESCO Days

Last week was so busy, delightful, and satisfying! Our ECE students participated in a whirlwind two days of UNESCO activities, to learn, reflect, and build community, under the umbrella theme of human rights.

Did you know…

That the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child was ratified by 192 countries in 1989? It was a surprise to me that this only occurred so relatively recently. A child-friendly version of the content of the document can be found here, and may be helpful if the topic comes up at home with your child:
