The UNCRC consists of 54 articles detailing different types of rights and actions that governments need to do in order to protect and fulfill child rights. As an educational institution respecting child rights, LBASS commits itself to meeting our students’ basic right to quality education that is meaningful and relevant and will help them reach their full potential. LBASS commits itself to doing what is best for its students, keeping in mind their best interests especially when making decision on matters that may affect them.
As children are humans with rights, highlighting child rights as its core value of focus this school year aligns LBASS with the international campaign to celebrate the gift of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and to help reaffirm the enduring human rights principles and standards the Declaration has helped establish. LBASS joins the global community in declaring:
“We will respect your rights regardless of who you are. We will uphold your rights even when we disagree with you.
When anyone’s human rights are denied, everyone’s rights are undermined, so we will STAND UP.
We will raise our voices. We will take action. We will use our rights to stand up for your rights.”
United, let us all make a better world possible by standing up and respecting, protecting, and fulfilling child rights!
