Childrens Week is an annual event celebrated in Australia during the fourth week in October each year and celebrates the right of children to enjoy childhood. It is also a time for children to demonstrate their talents, skills and abilities. In 1996 it was decided to adopt a permanent theme: "A Caring World Shares" as a reflection of Childrens Week aims.
The Launceston City Council is active in celebrating Childrens Week which helps to raise awareness within the community of the needs and rights of children and to assist young people to reach their individual potential.
