Children’s Week is a national celebration, which this year will be held between 21 and 29 October 2023 and recognises the talents, skills, achievements and rights of children.
Across the Wellington Shire, during children's week, there will be a fabulous range of events and activities on offer providing children and their families an opportunity to connect with local services and supports in a fun and engaging way.
This year’s theme, taken from Article 31 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, is:
Children have the right to relax, play and take part in activities they enjoy.

Families with young children are invited to bring along a waste-free picnic and join in nature play activities, stories and music. Facilitated by Sharon, Sustainability Education Officer.
