COMMISSIONER for Children and Young People in WA Colin Pettitt visited Greenfields Primary School today to discuss life in Mandurah with a group of Year 5 and 6 students and give them a chance to discuss any issues they might have.

Mr Pettitt has worked with children, young people, families and communities throughout WA as a teacher and later as a school principal.

He said the students were happy with life in Mandurah and with their school but their main concern was security, mainly in the home and a lack of activities in Mandurah for older children.

Mr Pettitt later visited Coodanup Senior College to talk with a group of Year 8, 9 and 10s and while in Mandurah, also looked at services and support for young people.
