87 Making of orders that have a significant impact on persons

(2) If the impact of the order is on a group of persons, such as a family, not all members of the group are to be given an opportunity to be heard but only a representative of the group approved by the Children's Court.
(3) The opportunity to be heard afforded by this section does not give the person who is heard the status or rights of a party to the proceedings.
