The Right to Play

Every child has the right to rest and leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities appropriate to the age of the child and to participate freely in cultural life and the arts

UN Convention on the rights of the child, Article 31.1

Kids develop essential motor skills through physical games and improve their social competencies as they interact with peers. Likewise, rest is key to recuperate and to have a fresh mind for class.

Our learners at Ubuntu Model Primary School enjoy their breaks everyday. The school compound turns into a place of joyful playing of all kinds of games.

Madol Kuneng from Primary 3 shared with us his favorite games:

“I like playing netball, football and skipping ropes. I play with my friends.”
