Children’s Week: 18-26 October

Share This Post


This year we are celebrating Children’s Week with the theme taken from the United Nations Charter on the Rights of the Child Article 12:

“You have the right to speak and be heard”

Children’s Week is an annual event celebrated in Australia during the fourth week in October. A diverse range of events and activities are organised at National, State and Local levels. These focus the attention of the wider community on children, their needs and achievements.

NAPCAN would like to invite people in the Northern Territory to participate in Children’s Week by providing an activity, workshop or entertainment for children in your community around this year’s theme.

A range of resources are available, which highlight ways in which we can show children they are being heard and to support children to speak, participate and make decisions.

The United Nations Convention on the rights of the child and child’s right to speak posters are available (hard copy) for organisations to display. The official Children’s Week poster provides a space for your local events to be advertised.

For support and ideas for Children’s Week 2014 and to register your event, please contact
