Children's Week NT

Children’s Week in the Northern Territory

The 2020 theme of Children’s Week is based on Article 15 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child:

‘Children have the right to meet together and to join groups and organisations,
as long as this does not stop other people from enjoying their rights.”

NT ACTS OF KINDNESS CHALLENGE

A special part of Children’s Week this year in the NT will be the culmination of the NT Acts of Kindness Challenge.

Launched as part of National Child Protection Week, the NT Acts of Kindness Challenge invites adults and children in the NT to record acts of kindness that they do or see. Then, during Children’s Week we plan to celebrate kindness by sharing the contributions that we’ve received.

To record your acts of kindness (and tell others about it), go to our NT Acts of Kindness page.

IT’S A WRAP UP! WEBINAR

Date: 30th Oct

Time: 12pm – 1pm (ACST)

Being kind is good for our health, good for those around us, and especially good for our children. And best of all, it’s contagious! 

During National Child Protection Week 2020, NAPCAN launched the NT Acts of Kindness Challenge to highlight the power of kindness as a tool for creating safe and nurturing environments for children and young people . 

Now as part of Children’s Week, we’re excited to host a webinar sharing some of the wonderful acts of kindness recorded in corridors, clubs, classes, committees and communities throughout the NT.

Link into the webinar to hear real-life Territory tales of kindness by those who have shared them, experienced them and spread kindness onto others.

Register for the webinar here.
