UNICEF HK actively supports teachers in developing curricula and educational activities about global child issues and child rights education, and encourages students to take actions in response to the needs of children around the world. In school year 2015/16, UNICEF HK invites Maryknoll Secondary School to co-develop a one-year pilot school partnership scheme which consists of 5 learning stages for OLE curriculum of Secondary Four students.
UNICEF HK School Partnership Scheme
The scheme aims at broadening students’ horizons, strengthening students’ conceptual understanding of global/local child issues and child rights, facilitating students’ self-awareness building and encouraging them to care the others through actions in order to cultivate a dynamic environment in which ‘rights’, ‘respect’ and ‘responsibilities’ are explicitly integrated and practiced.
