Children’s Week™ celebrates the right of children to enjoy childhood.
Children's Week 2018 is from 19 to 28 October.
NSW Children’s Week™:
Children’s Week National Theme 2018 UNCRC Article 12 "Children's views and opinions are respected. They have the right to express those views freely in all matters affecting the child and the right to be heard."
Children’s Week™ is celebrated in Australia during the fourth week in October every year.
Thousands of children and their families around the country will be involved in activities during Children’s Week™thanks to the participation of schools, childcare centres, play groups, libraries and cultural and community groups.
These events and activities focus the attention of the wider community on children and what’s important to them. Examples include education (in general), language and literacy, health, sport and recreation, the arts, science, as well as children’s cultural, social and emotional needs.
Children get to celebrate their own achievements, display their talents, demonstrate their skills and just have good fun. Families and communities reflect on the lives of children in other parts of the world where safety and freedom are not automatic.
NSW Children’s Week receives funding from the Australian Department of Education and Training.back to home
