National Aboriginal & Islander Children’s Day

National Aboriginal and Islander Children’s Day is celebrated on 4 August each year.

The 2011 National Aboriginal and Islander Children’s Day theme is :
“From small to big: growing stronger every day”.

Introduction

National Aboriginal and Islander Children’s Day (NAICD) is a celebration of our children. Held on 4 August each year, NAICD was first observed by SNAICC in 1988. Each year SNAICC produces and sends out resources to help you celebrate NAICD. The Secretariat of National Aboriginal and Islander Child Care (SNAICC) is the national non government peak body in Australia representing the interests of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families.

Celebrate our children

All those who support children, including early childhood services, teachers, educators, foster carers, welfare workers, policy makers and government are encouraged to take a break from their normal routine and organise activities involving children and families. Such local events celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and reinforce how important it is for their wellbeing to be connected to culture.
