Special Mission

Although children under 16 cannot vote in the Senedd elections, all children in Wales have the right to be listened to and taken seriously (Article 12).

Children may feel that some of their rights are currently being denied, or they may be passionate about a particular issue, and want to make a change.

We have prepared two lessons on Senedd elections and democracy for you to do in class.

Your Special Mission is to tell us what change you would make, if you were First Minister for the day. You might want to change something in your local area or community or change something big, which affects everybody in Wales.

Complete the “If I was First Minister…” activity sheet to tell us. You could collect all of the answers from your class or group and turn it into a piece of art or a big written piece from your school.

Tell us what you would change by 26th March 2021. You can email us at or Tweet us @childcomwales.
