United Nations Day is celebrated on October 24 of each year. It is a day when organization of the United Nations was set up. On October 24, 1945, 50 countries met in San Francisco, California, to form a group of nations that would work together for world peace. This group was called the United Nations or UN for short. Today, the UN includes 193 member states/countries.
Celebration of UN Day in our kindergarten raised children’s awareness of the place where they belong, make them feel they are a part of just a small world and it’s in their hands to make it a better place.
For this special event, preschoolers and KG1 students colored flags for different countries and decorated the playground of our campus.
KG2 students acted out a UN summit role play. One of the students was acting as UN Secretary General, while the others were ambassadors representing their countries. The agenda of this UN assembly was children’s rights and responsibilities, and the assembly agreed upon Children’s Rights Declaration book.
At the end of the role play all kindergarteners stood up to sing a beautiful song “It’s a small world after all”. Dressed up in white shirts and blue jeans children acted the song very impressively and everyone could feel the vibes of piece, unity and friendship.
