National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children's Day 2020

We are the Elders of tomorrow, hear our voice

#StrongInculture #EldersOfTomorrow

Children’s Day is a time for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families to celebrate the strengths and culture of their children. It is an opportunity for all Australians to show their support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, as well as learn about the crucial impact that culture, family and community play in the life of every child.

We invite you to help us create a national atmosphere of celebration, respect and recognition for National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day on 4 August.

Even if you're unable to get together for a community event due to the impacts of COVID-19, we encourage you to embrace the day and find innovative ways to mark this special day, whether that's at your early years service or with your family at home.

To help you celebrate, we will distribute fun Children’s Day bags to communities across Australia and we would also love to send you a brand-new Children's Day 2020 poster, either printed or as a digital resource for you to share with your community online or via social media.
