National Child Day is a day where we commemorate the UN’s adoption of the "United Nations Declaration of the Rights of the Child" document and the "United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child" document.  More details can be found on the national site (here).

To celebrate this day kids around Canada and Europe will work on similar art projects which will then be shipped to the Canadian War Museum and put on display, on 27 November!  On November 16 PSP will be hosting a FREE event for children, 15 years of age and younger, to come out, participate in play, activities, complete a piece of art to send for display and enjoy a FREE lunch with one another!
