Well hello,

My name is Maartje and I’m 14 years old. I’m a student of Lyceum de Grundel, a school in the east of the Netherlands. I love to read, especially English books. I also draw very often and I write sometimes. Fangirling, about bands (P!ATD, FOB, MCR, Green Day, TøP, etc.) and Youtubers (Danisnotonfire, Amazingphil, TylerOakley, Superfruit, etc.), is my daily business. Another thing that I do daily, is listening to music. Punk isn’t the only genre I like. I love Indie/Alt music really much! My favourite indie/alt music artists are: The 1975, MisterWives, Ivory Hours, WALLA, Oh Wonder and many more! In the summer I play basketball sometimes, but most of the time I’m too lazy to play a sport. I have a quite busy life, because I have three brothers and two sisters. I have a dog (a Lancashire Heeler) at my dad’s home (my parents are divorced). I love both dogs and cats really much. I guess that’s all I can tell about myself.




My name is Silvia and I’m 14 years old.

I live in Hengelo with my mother, dad, brother, sister and my dog Stella.

I’m half Italian and half dutch, so I can speak both languages.

Playing field hockey is one of my favourite things to do, I do it 3 or 4 times a week. Another thing that I like is playing piano, I love to practice and learn new songs. My favourite subjects are geography and French, but other languages are interesting to.

A great experience in my life was that I went to America, I saw a lot of things that are so beautiful or so diffirent from us.

Over a month I fly on my own to Italy and explore Milan and the city’s nearby. In the future I want to see more of the world and see diffirent cultures, but first I have to finish 6 years of high school.



Hello, my name is Jessica

I’m fourteen years old. I live in the Netherlands. The name of my school is Grundel Lyceum. I live with my parents and my little brother and sister, my brother is eleven years old and my sister is thirteen years old. My hobbies are having fun with friends and family and I really like to sing in spare time. I don’t really have a ‘favorite’ food dish, I love every kind of food, especially pizza; pizza is life. I don’t really know what I want to be when I grow up, maybe a doctor or something similar. I love to chill and watch movies and TV-shows on Netflix, I think that I’m a little bit addicted. For people who don’t know what Netflix is, It’s a programme where you can watch any movie or TV- show. Before I settle down somewhere, I really want to go and see the world, I want to make a unforgettable road trip with my friends. So this was me, talking about myself and my life thanks for reading.

I’m 13 years old and I live in the east of Holland. My parents are divorced and my mother has a new husband. I have one brother (17) and one sister (20). She studies at IRIO in the north of Holland. One very important fact to know about me is that in primary school I found out that I have gluten allergy for my whole life. Most people feel sorry for me, but I’m used to it, so please don’t. For me is family the best support because they always help me when I need some help. I like to sing, to ski and to play Handball. My team is on the first place, so I think we’re doing very well right now. I’m also playing Tennis, but I’m not so good at it. My parents say that I’m addicted to Netflix (the best app to watch TV-shows and movies in Holland), so it must be true and I like sweet things.

Research children’s rights:

By my research to information about children’s rights. I came across a website called War Child and I am going to tell something about that.

What does War Child do?
War Child helps children who are fleeing from war or violence and who consequently can’t go to school. Sometimes they can’t even play outside. There are also children who have no family in the camp they live there alone. War Child is taking care for a safe place so they can go to school and play outside and so they forget the danger for a moment.

What does War Child have to do with children’s rights?
Safe environment, education and housing are a few children rights where War Child fights for.

What can we do in the Netherlands for War Child?
On Kings Day War Child is organizing activities in the Netherlands to help children in these war areas. Look for more information on the internet site of War Child.
Made by: Viviène



The worst nightmare that a child can have is violence

The best dream for a child is a safe place to be

Why don’t we see, why are we giving them offense

Can someone tell us that what we do, does not make sense

Refugees feel our hate and they don’t complain

Maybe we have something to explain

Those refugees are crying because they have pain

In the meantime we are angry eating our steaks

No one feels them, everyone is keeping them out

In Holland, people are yelling ‘stop Syrian refugees’’ even harder than loud

Children just need a safe place to be, so they can normally sleep, eat WITHOUT AN ANGRY CROWD.

Poem by Melik




Feedback from: The Team from "Grigore Moisil" National College for Computer Science from Brasov, Romania:




In this project you used interesting ideas and enjoyable activities such as brainstorming. From the discussions resulted from the brainstorming you presented humanitarian cases and made pictures by using interesting diagrams. The students who are involved in the project, from our team, are very pleased about the brainstorming. We also liked the manner in which the elements were arranged in your school page in the platform.


There are many problems in the world, but they can be solved.

Dear Urmila,

We watched your video on YouTube and we really wanted to write a letter to you.

We heard you talking about the slaves and that the daughters at an age of 6/7 years old already need to work. In our country it doesn’t work like that. We have a law that is telling the children that they can’t work unless they are 12/13 years old or older. This doesn’t mean you can do everything, you can only do light work, not at nights and you have only a couple of hours you should work. That’s because we have the duty to go to school. So when we heard about the girls in your country, we were really sad. We can’t imagine how hard it is to go to work when you are only 6/7 years old.   Every child has the right to have a childhood, that shouldn’t be taken away from them.

We hope that things will change in the future.


Jia Wen, Noortje G, Jessica and Sophie K

School: Grundel, The Netherlands

Hello Urmila,
We read your story and we found it very interesting and inspiring. We have a lot of respect for you. It has to be really hard to be someone else’s  property. Everybody has the right of freedom, including you. We’re wondering how you did it every day again and again. These are some questions we want to ask you:

-        Have you ever talked with other girls like you?

-        Do you know why your parents gave you away?

-        Have you ever been in contact with your family again?

-        Did you know that there are thousands of other girls like you around the world who work as a house slave too?

-        How do you deal with your past now? Is it hard?

-        Where do you live now?

We really hope you can help other girls with the Kamalari Girls Forum. They deserve a better future. We hope that you can answer our letter. Have a great future!

Other pupils have designed a new school using software called Sketch up: This is a screenshot

this is a link to the clip



Are Clarks as wonderful as we think they are?

Wonderful and expensive shoes, but are they as wonderful as we think they are? No, they aren’t. They are made by children in India. Children from the age of 11 till 15. The factory they work in is very dangerous. The children work with glue and toxic gasses. By making the shoes the children could get cut themselves very badly. This type of child labour is very dangerous and should be forbidden forever. We are wearing lots of these shoes without knowing who has to pay for them and with that we don’t mean the money.

Reseach by Silvia. Source: http://www.indianet.nl/pdf/ChildLabourInTheLeatherFootwearIndustry.pdf

Valentijn and Michiel designed a school using Minecraft software. Download the video below for a 3d impression (video is 1 minute 23 sec.)

Research of my authentic brand shoes and my imitation brand shoes
Hello, my name is Melik and I am from the Grundel Lyceum. I’m doing research to find out where my shoes are made and how hard the employees of those factories have to work in what circumstances. I’m also looking for the differences between imitation brand shoes and authentic brand shoes.
Authentic Nike shoes (bought at the department store called ‘Bristol’)

Imitation Nike shoes (bought on an online Chinese marketplace platform)

The original Nike shoes are made in Indonesia, the fake replicas are made in Vietnam. The reason that the Nike shoes are made in Indonesia, is because the countries before (Korea and Taiwan) became a little less poor, so the salary had to be raised a bit. Here is a picture of the inside of a factory from Nike.

The Replica shoes are made in Vietnam, because it seems to be the cheapest place to run a factory. The factory are amateurish, but do have better work-circumstances. Here is a picture of the factory that makes replica shoes.

I did a little bit more research of the original Nike factories, because I heard a lot of rumours. After checking a lot of websites, i found an exposing website that shows that Nike had installed so called ‘suicide nets’. Those are nets that are hang up around the factories so employees can’t kill themselves, are stuck in the nets and can go to work again. This is all because the 25 people upfront the Nike industry want to make more and more billions. This is one of the suicide nets.

Costs for making one pair of Nike shoes:
People say that it costs €30,- but that’s not the case. They can make one pair of easy Nike shoes for only €10,-. They sell the shoes for 50 to 300 euro. This is inhumane. If you wanted to know how expensive my imitation brand shoes were and my authentic shoes were, here are the prices: The real ones were €109,- The fake one were €5,90 (without shipping) This is not a joke! Fake shoes are cheaper and are more fair-trade than authentic shoes. The only difference is the quality and the price tag.
This research made me think about this world, that is led by many corporations. If you’re imaging those prices, you will know that far on the top, there are some ultra-rich people who don’t know what to do with their money. And children in Asia and Africa are just dying. And we all support it by buying Nike’s clothes! The world has to wake up! Made by Melik , 2A1 of Lyceum de Grundel. Sources: Taobao.com Chron.com Dailymail.co.uk Taringa.net ABCNews.com

Evaluation learning circle:introduction.

We are a big class with 32 pupils and we did a lot for the introduction. Everyone wrote something about her or himself. And we sent a picture of ourselves with the introduction. Most of the class didn’t like that. And you can’t see most of the pictures on the site. We don’t know why. Lianne and Noortje from 2A1
We think that the introduction was a bit too classic, because we could have made an introduction video or something like that. the pictures were a little unnecessary, but with a picture you will give somebody else a good idea of the other person. See you next time! ,Michiel and Valentijn We think the introduction is a nice idea because the introduction introduces all the pupils you get an overview of everyone. There was enough time you could make an introduction in 1 day and you had like 1 week for it. Dion, Jasper and NiekEvaluation Audio-files:
We think that the audio-files had nothing to do with children’s rights. We already introduced ourselves in a short story. The only interesting thing about this was that another person said things about you. We do think that it was a good practice to speak English, but it wasn’t something new to us. I think a better idea to teach us something about children’s rights is to not introduce ourselves in a short story, but to introduce children’s rights in an audio-file. That makes you learn something about it in a very creative way.Made by: Merel, Silvia, Willemijn and Ilse.   Evaluation learning circle:Cartoon.We liked to make a cartoon about children's rights.
The cartoons that we saw were very nice.
 We have made a cartoon about 2 boys.1 in the war and 1 was spoiled.And we made a cartoon about kidnapping.We spent a lot of time making the cartoon and it turned out very beautiful.  Delivering the cartoon was very difficult. Made by Sophie, Valerie, Britt and Hieke
Evaluation rap. Top: The lyrics were very good and make a lot of sense they also were right about what most people think. Flop: bad quality and really short time: too short because it is very nice gijs, dyon, jochem, tom, frans, tim We have been very busy with this project. We have done a lot of work, for example we have written a rap , here is a link

We have also made a school design, it is very nice, you can check it in the learning circles. The flops of the rap are that not everyone gave 100% to make a good rap. The tops of the rap are that the even after all things that happened we did a good rap. By Mishel and Stan.

What did we learn from this project?:We think that we learned a lot, because we knew about the children who aren’t safe. When we began this project we didn’t know everything about children’s rights and now everything is clear. We think it is sad what some children see or experience. Top: we learned a lot about children’s rights and the way some children live. Flop: not everything was interesting and it took a lot of effort. Time: the project was way too long and we haven’t skyped yet. Sometimes we couldn’t study as much as we supposed to do, because of this project.

I am very happy with the results of all the second graders in our school, de Grundel. By using our electronic learning environment, It's learning, you guys managed to upload over 482 files like Word documents, pictures, mp3 audio files and videos. Thanks to the pupils for their assistance in uploading it to the Learning Circle website and sharing it with the world. You have made something worth sharing! Mr. Halfwerk (proud to be) your teacher of English

Designer boys from De Grundel: a underground school with elevators and a station! I think you can put all your plans in bright daylight and be proud on all the creations and thought for children's rights. Bravo!
