In 2016 the theme for Children’s Week is on Article 17 from the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child: “Children have the right to reliable information from the media.” Children’s Week™ celebrates the right of children to enjoy childhood. It is also a time for children to demonstrate their talents, skills and abilities. You can register an event in your community on our events page! Annual funding gratefully received from the Australian Government Department of Education and Training. More >
