Children's Week Grants

Children's Week is an annual event celebrated in Australia. 

In 1996, it was decided to adopt a permanent theme 'A Caring World Shares' as a reflection of Children's Week aims while, at the same time, acknowledging the designated year on national posters and other printed materials.

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.

Thousands of children and their families around the country are involved in activities and events during 'the week' through the participation of schools, playgroups, childcare, kindergartens, cultural groups, libraries, departments and community groups.

Strathbogie Shire Council is committed to children and families and supports Children's Week by providing funds to local preschool services to deliver an event to celebrate Children's Week in their communities.

Children's Week runs between Saturday 19 - Sunday 27 October 2019.


Submission for the 2019/2020 Children's Week funding is now open.
