The finale of Children's Republic ended with a massive parade around Sydney Opera House and the kids presenting their constitution for a better world to The Hon Scott Farlow MLC, Parliamentary Secretary to the Premier.
April School Holidays Creative Play is set up right outside Children's Republic and invites little reporters to draw, photograph and write about the world. Their stories are published in digital paper SOH daily news. Some samples of our favorite front pages are in this gallery. SOH Daily News operates until 23rd April.
It's Monday, 10 April and Sydney Opera House's Western Foyers are a hub of activity. Roving reporters are uploading images to SOH Daily news. Mini makers are designing flags for a world run by kids. And little podcasters are using audio to tell stories in podcasting workshops with This Kid Life host Jennifer Macey.
Our session on Sunday, 9 April, was packed with kid makers drawing and sewing flags for a new world order; run entirely by kids. See all the glorious making in the Sunday Gallery.

This Kid Life host Jennifer Macey held a series of mind-expanding podcasting workshops during the recent Children's Republic at Sydney Opera House. Kids interviewed other each about what a world run by kids would be like. Their diverse and wonderful ideas include "unlimited burgers", "saving the environment" and "painting the Opera House rainbow coloured". Listen to kids tell us their thoughts in the bite sized episodes below.
