There is lots of information on the news and websites about COVID but it can be hard to find anything just for kids that explains the things that you want to know. That’s why we created this page during the lockdown in 2021. It is especially for children!
Check out our latest videos about RATs and getting vaccinated.
In 2021 Jodie Griffiths-Cook, the ACT Children and Young People Commissioner, ran an art competition to give children and young people the opportunity to express their feelings and reactions to Covid and lockdown.
The book and video gallery present the artworks, stop motion videos and quotes by children and young people in the ACT reflecting on their lockdown experiences.
Their lockdown legacies represent an important part of ACT history.
During the lockdown Jodie regularly recorded video messages just for children. Check out what she had to say by click the images below.
During the pandemic, especially our most recent lockdown, we have heard from you, ACT’s children and young people, in a variety of ways. One of those is through the Young Thinker Forum where you can tell us about issues you care about in whatever format you want. Check out what children and young people in the ACT are telling us here, and feel free to add your thoughts using the link above.
We heard from a lot of children who were getting bored so we created some resources to help. Each page has a range of activities that can be done alone, or with the help of adults. Click on the images to expand.
Our Lock It Down! newsletter was created to support you during the long Canberra lockdown. It was full of accurate information, and had lots of fun activities to try. You can check out all the editions through the links below. If you like it, check out our new Rights in ACTion newsletter too.
