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.
