Wear Blue on National Child Day

November 19, 2018

All school communities are encouraged to wear blue on Tuesday, November 20, 2018, for National Child Day in support of the Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre. 

National Child Day is celebrated in Canada on November 20 in recognition of our country’s commitment to upholding the rights of children and two historic events: the 1959 signing of the UN Declaration of the Rights of the Child and the adoption of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1989. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child sets out the rights of children with 54 articles that provide us with a solid roadmap of what is needed to raise healthy and happy children and youth.
