Children's Week NT

Children’s Week in the Northern Territory (19 - 28 October)

The 2019 theme of Children’s Week is based on Article 24 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child:

‘Children have the right to the best health care possible, safe water to drink, nutritious food, a clean and safe environment, and information to help them stay well’.


Be part of Children’s Week and support this year’s theme by:

  • organising or taking part in an event and registering it on the website
  • promoting Children’s Week via your email signature, social media or newsletters
    displaying the poster
  • sharing the message that ‘Healthy children start with healthy communities’
  • posting pictures of your activities to social media with the #childrensweek2019 on Facebook (@napcan.playyourpart)
    and Twitter (NAPCAN_AU) and Instagram (playyourpart_napcan).

Events

A great way to get involved with Children’s Week is by organising or attending an event. 

When planning your event, remember:

  • please register your event on the website so we can help you promote it and so so families and organisations in your area can get involved
  • events can be as big or as small as you like – just getting a few people together can be a great way to celebrate Children’s Week and build the connections that are so valuable in creating healthy communities.


Consider ways to link your activities to this year’s theme… maybe by:

  • including healthy food
  • sharing information about available health care
  • asking children about their priorities and ideas for creating healthy communities and environments
  • promoting sports and recreation activities
  • bringing people together to help connect families and communities.
