4 August 2023
At DWSP we strive to recognise and celebrate the strengths and unique culture of the children and families that we work with.
On the 4th of August, all Australians are all invited to celebrate the strengths and culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children alongside their families and communities.
The 4th of August is Children’s Day, a day to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and recognise the importance of culture, family and community in ensuring their wellbeing, safety and development.
We aim to celebrate the day here with both actions and knowledge: taking time to celebrate the unique culture and strengths of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and also learn more about the Voice to Parliament.
How you can celebrate Children’s Day with your family or community?
1. You can download some of the terrific activity sheets available from the Children’s Day website https://www.aboriginalchildrensday.com.auand have a conversation about the meaning behind Children’s Day.
2. You can share a piece of cake or make a play dough with your family and learn about why Children’s Day is celebrated on the 4th August.
3. You can learn more about Children’s Day and explore why children thriving and growing up strong in culture is so important for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
