10 December 2015 Human Rights Day

Primary 3A told the school about Human Rights Day during assembly.

They told us  about the right we have to education, play, food and water. They sang a great song called ‘We have Rights.’

We learned that long ago girls didn’t have to go to school. They had to stay home and cook, clean and knit – we’re glad that changed.
