Children’s Week is a national celebration of children’s rights, talents and citizenship held on the fourth Wednesday of October in Australia to coincide with Universal Children’s Day. Each year the theme of Children’s Week highlights a particular Children’s Right.
The Theme for 2019 is Article 24 – ‘Children have the right to good quality health care, clean water, nutritious food and a clean environment so that they will stay healthy’.
The information and resources from the 2018 Children’s Week are included below. New material will be added for Children’s Week 2019 midway through the year.
