Happy children’s Day!


20th November marks Universal Children’s Day, an occasion, according to the United Nations, to promote and celebrate children’s rights. The aim of November 20 is to build a better world for young people. 

United Nations Universal Children’s Day was established in 1954 and is celebrated on November 20th each year to improve awareness of their rights among children worldwide, and to improve children’s welfare. This day also promotes international togetherness, since November 20th it is on this date in 1959 that UN General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the Child and the Convention on the Rights of the Child. At Al Hekma International School, we have always promoted and cared for the welfare of the children in our school, which will be the future face of the Kingdom. Universal Children’s Day on November 20th saw some unique activities for children, by children, in our school. This was a fun day, with a serious message. Our students sang songs, read poems and gave speeches to mark the importance of this day. Universal Children’s Day offers each of us an inspirational entry-point to advocate, promote and celebrate children’s rights, translating into dialogues and actions that will build a better world for Children.
