Children on the Edge

24th December 2021


 As a UNICEF Rights School we strongly believe that every child has the right to be free and to thrive, according to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). However, children in marginalised communities often face abuse, exploitation, exclusion, neglect, and even death; their plight is frequently considered too challenging to tackle.The charity 'Children on the Edge' ensure that where they work, everyone in the child’s environment is aware of and committed to respecting the universal rights enshrined in the CRC. By working alongside communities to co-create protective environments that generate hope, life, colour and fun, we enable children to realise their rights.
Ms Gilbert has been working via the Cornwall Music Makers to develop a connection with children in a school in Bangladesh. Please watch the Christmas greeting our Year 1 and Year 2 children sent and the greeting they received back.
We can't wait to see how this develops.
