26th National Children’s Month
CCDC joins the celebration of the 26th National Children’s Month at the Municipal Gymnasium held yesterday, November 20, 2018.
The SSG elected officers of the Senior High School Department attended the event accompanied by ma’am Jhudy Ann Calapen.
November is declared National Children’s Month as stated in Republic Act 10661 to commemorate the adoption of the Convention on the Rights of the Child
by the United Nations General Assembly on November 20, 1980.
The celebration seeks to increase knowledge of parents/caregivers on how to handle or educate their children while in the cyberspace; intensify the advocacy
of positive discipline in classrooms dynamics in daily teaching; provide space for children’s participation in the legislative advocacy; push for the passage
of the Positive Discipline Bill and celebrate gains and successes on child rights promotions and protection of the country.
Positive discipline, as stipulated in the Bill is disciplining children without resorting to physical or corporal punishment,
such as spanking, hitting, slapping, shouting, or shaming.
This year’s theme “Isulong: Tamang Pag-aaruga sa Lahat ng Bata,” is a call to stop all forms of violence on children and pushes for a safe,
nurturing and protective environment for them through positive discipline.
