Article of the Week

Each week we have an assembly focusing on different articles from the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.


World Refugee Day is 20th June 2021, so this week we are learning about:


Article 20

(refugee children) ​

If a child is seeking refugee 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 10 (family reunification)​

Governments must respond quickly and sympathetically if a child or their parents apply to live together in the same country. If a child’s parents live apart in different countries, the child has a right to visit and keep in contact with both of them.​


If you would like to explore this at home, you could watch this video and talk about what you think governments do already, what they could do better and what they should do.
