Keep children safe: Grenada celebrates child month

Grenada has decided that 2020 Child Month activities will be held to sensitise the public on the need to protect children.  

The Ministry of Education said due to the need to ensure adherence to health and safety protocols and the reports of child sexual abuse, the focus will be on the safety of children. 

The activities will run from October 15 to November 15.

Although the entire month of October is officially designated as Child Month, this change became necessary given the need to prioritise alternative arrangements to support parents and teachers for the safe reopening of schools.  

The Child Month Committee has decided that the theme for Child Month 2020 is “Keeping All Our Children Safe.”  

The focus will be on health and safety during the COVID-19 pandemic.  

The broader theme for Child Month continues to be “Love the Child.” 

Based on the situation that exists in schools due to COVID 19 protocols, especially the need for social distancing, the Ministry said it will be scaling down activities in order to keep everyone safe.
