Children's key relationships and their views on ages of responsibility (Term 1 2016)


Child rights

22 January 2016

In term 1, 2016, two schools, a primary school and an intermediate school, participated in the Office of the Children’s Commissioner’s Child and Youth Voices Survey.

The survey asked a range of questions about the important people in student’s lives, as well as what age young people considered themselves old enough to do various activities, from travelling to school alone, to living independently.
