Celebrate Children's Day 2021

Childrens Day 2021 – Proud in culture, strong in spirit

Help us create a national atmosphere of celebration, respect and recognition for National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day on 4 August. This year our theme is: Proud in culture, strong in spirit

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and communities have provided love and care for their children, growing them up strong and safe in their cultural traditions, for thousands of generations. For our children, safety, wellbeing and development are closely linked to the strengths of their connections with family, community, culture, language, and Country.

Our Children's Day 2021 theme highlights the importance of supporting strong family and community connections to help our children achieve strong spiritual and cultural wellbeing and to form proud cultural identities.

Find out more about Children's Day this year and ways you can celebrate. You can mark this special day in your own way – whether at your early years service, school, on social media or with your family at home.

See how we celebrated in 2020, and find out more about why we celebrate Children's Day.
