Quang Tri children voice opinions at forum with NA deputies

Nearly 100 children representing more than 100,000 children in the central province of Quang Tri attended a forum with National Assembly deputies in the locality on December 13.

The forum aimed to enhance the quality of activities to care for, protect and educate children, and the exercise of children’s fundamental rights in accordance with the Children Law.

At the event, the children raised questions related to their rights and obligations as well as measures to protect them from sexual abuse and school violence.

They also suggested the adjustments of curriculum and teaching methods to reduce schooling pressure on children, as well as support in building pools and swimming teaching to reduce drowning among children, along with the control of the publications harming children on the Internet. It is necessary to set up venues for children from ethnic minority groups to learn special subjects, they said.

Representatives from the provincial NA deputy delegation and People’s Council as well as leaders of departments and agencies answered questions of the children, highlighting the principle that the rights of children must be respected and observed. Children should receive due protection and care to ensure their comprehensive development as stated in the Children Law, they said.

Head of the province’s NA deputy delegation of Quang Tri Hoang Duc Thang pledged that in the time to come, NA deputies, the People’s Council and administrations at all levels will give greater attention to the protection, care and education of children, while maintaining and expanding the forum to listen to children’s voice and aspirations.

They will also work harder in dealing with requests of agencies and organisations related to children, he said.

On the occasion, the organisation board presented 20 bicycles to poor students with outstanding academic performance./.
