Kids at SPAJALICA Learned about Children’s Rights

A 2-hour workshop on children’s rights was held at the Educational-Leisure Centre for Youth SPAJALICA during Children’s Week. The attendants of The School of Friendship hosted 40 of their peers from the Third Elementary School in Ilidža.

The children are recognised as a particularly sensitive and specific category by the International Law and their protection cannot be ensured through common mechanisms. The Declaration of the Rights of the Child was adopted by the UN General Assembly in 1959.

Bosnia and Herzegovina ratified the Convention of the Rights of the Child in 1992, which made its provisions legally binding to our country as well. In order to successfully protect children’s rights, it is very important, among other things, to educate children about their rights. Starting from an early age.

The workshop on children’s rights held at the Educational-Leisure Centre for Youth was attended by students of the Third Elementary School in Ilidža and among them were also the first-grade students. They were presented with their rights primarily through creative games, after which they watched a short video on children’s rights. After this, the youngest children made drawings in which they presented their interpretation of children’s rights.

The elementary school students were presented with children’s rights and children’s obligations and introduced with very important differences between the two categories. Older students tried classifying children’s rights and children’s obligations written on stickers after watching the video, and thus they interactively learned about the differences between the two. The oldest group of students formed 4 working groups that classified children’s rights and wrote and made drawings related to them.

Elementary school students’ drawings will be presented at the exhibition on the topic of “Children’s Rights” that will be held at the Educational-Leisure Centre for Youth SPAJALICA on Children’s Day, 20 November 2011.
