The Children and Young People’s Advisory Council recently met with Mark Morrissey, the Commissioner for Children in Tasmania. The Council members discussed issues important to them including education, bullying, the environment, multicultural and religious diversity and how to develop good communities.
Another round of meeting is being planned for July this year. The input from the council members will be used in a report which the Commissioner will present to Parliament later this year.
