Xingwana said the department will build a peace park where children will play in peaceful surroundings. Civil society and other government departments will be represented on the Council which is to be launched by Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe.


"The Council will focus on fighting abuse," she explained.


National Children's Day is observed every year on the first Saturday of November to celebrate progress being made towards the realisation and promotion of the rights of children.


"Today is an important day bringing children from various provinces together," said Xingwana adding that the children could play a participatory role by expressing their concerns.


The minister added that government is focusing on the improvement of the quality of education for poverty stricken children as well as children with disabilities.


The celebrations brought together children from all provinces except the Western Cape.
