FRIDAY OCTOBER 23 2015 CHILDREN'S WEEK 51 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA Young uns in the spotlight Hector the Safety Cat will make a special appearance at the East Point Reserve opposite Lake Alexander playground on Sunday, November 1 CHILDRENS Week is celebrated throughout Australia during the fourth week in October every year. This year child and familyfriendly events will be held in communities across the NT. These events focus the attention of the wider community on children, their needs and achievements. This year marks the 25th anniversary since Australia signed the United Nations Childrens Rights Convention. The NT is celebrating the week with the theme Making NT Communities Child Friendly. A child-friendly community values, supports, respects, provides for and actively includes children. NAPCAN is encouraging adults in the NT to ask children, what makes a childfriendly community? Research shows one of the best ways to prevent child abuse and neglect is by building child-friendly communities that support and value children and families. NAPCAN has a range of resources available that highlight ways in which we can show children they are being heard and to support children to speak, participate and make decisions. To find out about events visit napcan.org.au or contact Lesley on 0409 099 581.
