His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd) sums up the importance of valuing our children in his Children's Week Message. 'Children are so precious to all of us. They represent our future and they have the enthusiasm and potential to change our world and make it a better place. Our great responsibility is to celebrate them for who they are and appreciate them for what they can be. We must do everything we can to ensure children in our society are safe and happy and have every opportunity to fulfill their own dreams and aspirations, this can only happen if we protect and promote their human rights.'
