NSW Children’s Week celebrates the right of every child to enjoy childhood and focuses attention on children, their rights and achievements. It runs from 24 October to 01 November.

NSW Children’s Week:

  • Raises community awareness of the needs, rights and achievements of children and youth
  • Encourages the community, children’s services, support groups, schools, youth and community groups to plan and conduct events to celebrate childhood and to highlight issues involved in childhood and youth
  • Honours parents and recognises the contribution of carers, workers and teachers in children’s development
  • Encourages individuals, groups and organisations to organise local activities and events that support and involve children and their families
  • Recognises young people who are an example and role model for other young people through the presentation of Awards


The Children’s Week National Theme for 2020 is UNCRC Article 15 – Children have the right to meet together and join groups and organisations as long as it does not stop other people from enjoying their rights. In exercising their rights, children have the responsibility to respect the rights, freedom and reputations of others.

Here's How to Get Involved:

  • Pack a picnic
  • Plan a treasure hunt
  • Organise a movie afternoon
  • Decorate/ create a Children's Week room display
  • Bake cupcakes
  • Ask children to bring in their baby photos to display
  • Playgroup games
  • Children can make cards for one another
