The Gauteng Provincial Legislature (GPL) will TODAY 15 July 2022, convene the 2022 Children Sector Parliament under the theme ‘It is in our hands’.
The purpose of the Children Sector Parliament is to empower children to participate in legislative processes and to encourage the born free generation to be part of influencing and shaping good governance in a democratic South Africa.
The Children Sector Parliament will also provide children with the opportunity of demonstrating their understanding and show their responsibilities on the freedom and rights they have in exercising democracy.
The platform will allow for interaction between children and their democratically elected representatives, i.e. Members of the Provincial Legislature (MPLs). This platform will assist MPLs in their law-making mandate and oversight over the Executive Authority with regards to challenges facing children.
Topics to be discussed on the day include:
· Bullying and the effects it has on long-term learning;
· How has COVID-19 affected the delivery of quality education; and
· An assessment of challenges faced by learners under COVID-19.
