“Parties shall assure to the child who is capable of forming his or her own views the right to express those views freely in all matters affecting the child, the views of the child being given due weight in accordance with the age and maturity of the child”.
BASLA meets formally several times per academic year. Students discuss matters of relevance to themselves and their peers. They are representing all of the students in the Academy and their views help us to support and lead the Academy on their behalf.
