Individual rights and responsibilities

Activity:

To discuss the individual's rights and responsibilities

[lo 2.1]

Read this attentively

Each person has certain rights, for instance the right to education, the right to health care, etc. Your educator has probably introduced you to the Charter of Human Rights. Addendum 1 contains an excerpt from Chapter 2 of our Constitution, The Bill of Human Rights. Make use of this excerpt for this activity and also for the two activities that follow.

Rights go hand in hand with responsibilities. If a person has the right to education, that person also has the responsibility to grasp the opportunity and to learn! If a person has the right to health care, that person must play his or her role in ensuring a healthy lifestyle. Rights bring responsibilities.

As human beings, we have the following responsibilities:

A responsibility towards oneself to live healthily and happily;

A responsibility to be courteous to other people, including parents, educators and people from other cultures and beliefs.

A responsibility to make a positive contribution to the well-being of the community in which one lives.

A responsibility to be a good citizen.

A responsibility to contribute towards the well-being of the wider community and the environment.

From the above discussion it must be clear that no one can be an island.

1. Conduct a class discussion on the relationship between rights and responsibilities.

2. Express your personal opinion on the statement that follows, in your own words: "For each privilege that you have, there is a responsibility that you have to accept."

3. Refer to the Bill of Rights for help and complete the following table:

I have a right to education I have the responsibility to perform to the best of my ability
