Today we celebrate National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day (NAICD) held on 4 August each year to honour and celebrate the importance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children within family and community. First held in 1988, the Secretariat of National Aboriginal and Islander Child Care (SNAICC) also uses this day to increase awareness in the wider community of important issues impacting on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children. This year we celebrate with the themeWe are the Elders of tomorrow, hear our voice.
Check out the Activities page on the new #ChildrensDay site. To start off Children’s Day 2020 celebrations, SNAICC have asked children to send them a drawing: ‘What does culture mean to you?’ Download this template and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. See some of the great entries they have received so far.
