Youngsters at Duckmanton Primary School marked UNICEF’s 25 year Convention and campaign to uphold children’s rights.

As part of their celebrations the school took part in a balloon launch.

A school spokesman said: “Each class thought about which rights mattered most to them and these were then written on helium balloons and released so that the children’s messages could be carried out into our local community and beyond.

“A big thank you goes to the PFA for funding the balloons and helium.”

The Convention globally changes the way children are viewed and treated with a distinct set of rights. It has helped reduce infant mortality and has increased school enrolment.
