NATIONAL CHILDREN’S WEEK™
SATURDAY 19 – SUNDAY 27 OCTOBER 2019
The Children’s Week National Theme for 2019 is the UNCRC 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. Richer countries should help poorer countries achieve this.’
WHAT IS CHILDREN’S WEEK?
Children’s Week is a week-long celebration centred around Universal Children’s Day, a day created by the United Nations General Assembly in 1954 to promote friendship and understanding among children of the world.
The aim of the Children’s Week committee is to unite as many existing children’s events into an incredible week of activities for children and their families.
A diverse range of events and activities organised at national, state and local level as part of Children’s Week, will recognise the talents, skills and abilities of children. We encourage the participation of schools, playgroups, childcare centres, kindergartens, cultural groups, libraries, departments and community groups to engage in activities that facilitate and support children and their families to play, learn and grow together.
Neat Eats is an initiative of the Children’s Week Association of Queensland. It has been developed to support the Children’s Week National Theme 2019 UNCRC 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. Richer countries should help poorer countries achieve this.’
