Special guest, Helen Connolly + pizza!
At the June EYDN Board meeting we welcomed a very special guest. Helen Connolly, Commissioner for Children and Young People, dropped in to meet the board and tell us a bit more about her role. She spoke about how she wants young people to feel more empowered to speak up on issues important to them and how it was her job to ensure SA laws include and look after young people.
Helen also asked the group to share a little about their experiences at school, with bullying, accessing health care and more! This was a great opportunity to share our voice on issues important to EYDN.
Helen even posed for a photo with the group - some of whom were on zoom - and shared a slice of pizza! Thanks for visiting Helen. We’re all looking forward to having you back soon!
