Thousands of children across the country will applaud their right to a childhood this year as part of Children’s Week, which will be celebrated between 24 October – 1 November 2020.
Children’s Week sees thousands of children and their families from around the country involved in activities and events staged at numerous locations including schools, childcare centres, parks, playgroups, libraries and cultural and community groups.
COVID-19 presents challenges in 2020, and events will only take place in venues operating under COVID-Safe plans or online.
Children’s Week is an opportunity for children to celebrate their own achievements, display their talents, demonstrate their skills and just have good fun.
“It is also a good time for us to talk to children about on the lives of children in other parts of the world where safety and freedom are not automatic,” Dan Marais, President of Children’s Rights Queensland said.
“Children’s Rights Queensland looks forward to seeing Queenslanders get creative this year as they celebrate Children’s Week under challenging circumstances.
The theme for this year’s International Children’s Week is “Children have the right to meet together and join groups and organisations as long as this does not prevent other people from enjoying their rights.”
