Claire led our assembly today and the children were very well behaved.  Claire told us about a boy called José in Guatemala who was very poor.  He is not allowed to go to school because he has to work.  Even though there is a recession on in Ireland, we are still one of the richest countries in the world and all children have rights, which children like José don’t have.  Amnesty International try to help children around the world who do not share the same rights as other children in richer countries.  Claire gave some friendship bracelets to the teachers that were made in Guatemala and they are now for sale for €2 each.  All money raised will go direct to Amnesty International.
