Children鈥檚 Week is a national celebration of children鈥檚 rights, talents and citizenship. The Children鈥檚 Week National Theme for 2023 is based on Article 31 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC):

Children have the right to relax, play and to join in a wide range of leisure activities.

Children鈥檚 Week is from Saturday 21st - Sunday 29th October 2023. We are excited to launch the Digital Art Book听and听Online Gallery听to acknowledge and celebrate Children鈥檚 Week as a diocese and raise awareness of children鈥檚 rights and the work of the UNCRC. This project was initiated to support the implementation of the听听and听听philosophy that advocates for student voice and agency in the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle.听

In Term 2, we invited students K-12 to contribute to a听Digital Art Book听to acknowledge and celebrate Children鈥檚 Week. Over 400 submissions of art and stories were received which express ideas and creativity about the importance of play, rest and leisure in Article 31 (UNCRC). This book showcases an exciting and diverse selection of student art submissions and the听Online Art Gallery听contains听all听student art submissions received for Children鈥檚 Week from across the diocese.

Thank you to all students, parents and teachers who supported student to participate in this Wellbeing and Early 第一福利导航 initiative.
