C.S. Lewis once said, “You can make anything by writing”. The art of writing helps us explore genuine ideas and realise our creativity. In line with this thought during the Child Rights week, BOSCO Bangalore organised essay competitions for the school students and leaders of Child Rights Clubs (CRC) of St. Rocks School, Cleveland Town, Bengaluru, and BOSCO Nilaya, Police Road, Bengaluru on 19 November 2019. Around 40 children from St. Rocks School and 24 CRC leaders took part in the essay competition.
The essay competition organised under the CREAM project, aimed to make children aware of child rights issues, child rights, child protection mechanisms, CHILDLINE and the child helpline 1098. The topics for essay writing included child marriage, child labour, the importance of child rights, and the advantages and disadvantages of mobile phone usage among youth. The essay writing provided a platform for the students to pen down their knowledge on the given subjects, while helping them maintain a logical flow of thought and a systematic presentation of ideas and inspiration. The contents expressed the innovative thoughts and free reflections of the young minds. After the essay writing competition, students took an oath to protect their own rights as well as to restore the rights of other children.
