The Power of Knowledge

The Yolande Frank Art Awards is an opportunity for WA students in primary and secondary schools to promote the importance of human rights education. Through Visual Arts language, students are encouraged to reflect on and use any medium to communicate the meaning and importance of a selected human right. These annual awards are in memory of Yolande Frank since 2010. As a Holocaust survivor, Yolande held a passion for ensuring that children understood about universal human rights.

What if we lived in a society where we ALL could understand and respect each other’s rights? What if children didn’t have to worry about the lack of food, health, education, love? Well, it is a big topic that we can’t avoid to look at because it is the basis of our future society. Even if, perhaps, it doesn’t affect us “directly” today, one day it very well may.

“Children have the right to good quality health care, clean water, nutritious food and a clean environment so that they will stay healthy.” (United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child Article 24)

Here at Bold Park, we respect our children, we treat each other as equals. We encourage our children to understand their rights, work in collaboration and achieve success as a team. So during this process, four artworks were chosen to represent our school, but we are all winners! We all won the knowledge of our rights, and it is an unmeasurable prize!

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”- Helen Keller

“Stand aside for a while and leave room for learning, observe carefully what children do, and then, if you have understood well, perhaps teaching will be different from before.

Creativity becomes more visible when adults try to be more attentive to the cognitive processes of children than to the results they achieve in various fields of doing and understanding.”
