Children have their say
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
