Belonging to our country, city town, community, religion, sharing our country’s values in things like respect, tolerance and freedom.
Interacting taking part in the life of our country and communities so that we can help each other to make it a better place for all to live in.
Rights your rights to live and worship in the country freely, give your views on political issues, take part in democratic elections. The rights of others to the same freedoms that you enjoy. Government rights over you, for example in making sure you obey the law and pay your taxes.
Responsibilities: your responsibilities towards each other, caring for other people, not interfering with the rights of others, obeying the law, and going to school. Government responsibilities like spending your taxes in an appropriate way on such things as health, schools and security. Protecting your rights as a citizen like ensuring you can live, speak freely and worship peacefully.
