Children's Reference Group

About the Cockburn Children’s Reference Group

The Children’s Reference Group (CRG) gives primary school-aged children the chance to be involved in the planning of their community in a fun and interactive way. We want children to have an input into planning and development, events and programs, and issues of relevance to themselves and their families.
The CRG sessions are coordinated by Family and Community Development  staff.

What will the children do?

Members of the Children’s Reference Group have an opportunity to express their thoughts and ideas through art, interactive activities, and discussions.

How do I become a member of the Children’s Reference Group?

The role of parents in the Children’s Reference Group

Parents play a supportive role in the CRG, by: 

  • Bringing your child to a session where required
  • Giving written permission for your child’s involvement and telling us about any special requirements. 

Parents are encouraged to wait close by (library, shops, outside) during the sessions.
