Global Dignity Day takes place in schools on the third Wednesday of October each year engaging students in a conversation on dignity. The aim is to make the concept of dignity tangible and understandable for each and every student. Defining dignity in their own words and sharing stories from their own lives gives students ownership of the concept.

In the light of this theme, Beaconhouse School System, Primary I PECHS celebrated the Global Dignity Day with an initiative to commend and encourage good practices of dignified and courageous individuals of our society. The purpose of celebrating this day was to highlight the fact that all people poor or rich and all occupations/jobs are bound to equal amounts of respect and have the same importance.
