Chil­dren have their say

Mandurah Coastal Times - - LET’S EAT -

COM­MIS­SIONER for Chil­dren and Young Peo­ple in WA Colin Pet­tit vis­ited Green­fields Pri­mary School last week to dis­cuss life in Mandurah with a group of Year 5 and 6 stu­dents and give them a chance to dis­cuss any is­sues they might have.

Mr Pet­tit has worked with chil­dren, young peo­ple, fam­i­lies and com­mu­ni­ties through­out WA as a teacher and later as a school prin­ci­pal.

He said the stu­dents were happy with life in Mandurah and with their school but their main con­cern was se­cu­rity, mainly in the home, and a lack of ac­tiv­i­ties in Mandurah.

Mr Pet­tit later vis­ited Coodanup Se­nior Col­lege to talk with a group of Year 8, 9 and 10 stu­dents, Peel Youth Med­i­cal Ser­vices, the Billy Dower Cen­tre, Pas­sages Re­source Cen­tre and the City of Mandurah. A re­port on his visit will be avail­able soon on ccyp.wa.gov.au
