Children's Week is an annual event celebrated in Australia during the fourth week in October.
In 1996 it was decided to adopt a permanent theme: 'A Caring World Shares'.
A diverse range of events and activities are organised at National, State and Local levels.
These focus the attention of the wider community on children, their needs and achievements.
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.
