The children's legitimate opinions, aspirations and proposals have been listened by the leaders and resolved in a timely and effective manner to help them have a safer, healthier and more rewarding environment.

Members of the Council also joined regular training courses to improve soft and social skills through experimental camp activities, group work so as to better fulfill their role.

Although the model is newly-launched, its members have exerted efforts to hold numerous practical activities, many good models at the grassroots level, practical opinions have increased.
