Children's Day

On 20 November last year, we celebrated Children’s Day after the church service. (The UN has marked 20 November of every year as Universal Children’s Day). We heard children reading out what the rights and responsibilities of children are, and there was lots of songs and dances. Here are some photos of the celebrations.

Children decorated and waiting for their time to perform.

Here is a video of some children singing a song. I liked this song; the words went like this: “We are the children of Bougainville. We are the leaders of tomorrow. Together we come, united we stand. Respect our rights as we stand.”

The adults performed some items too. I thought it was pretty cool to see a guy playing the guitar behind his head in this photo:

Some ladies singing and dancing.
