She will discuss recent work of the Representative’s Office – reports on Audit of Plans of Care and the government’s role in Aboriginal services over the past ten or so years. She will also look at education past and present and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission as related to the rights described in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
