Children's Week Theme

The Children’s Week Council of Australia strongly advocates for and promotes the United Nations Convention on the Rights of a Child. Each year an article is selected by the Children’s Week Council of Australia. This article becomes the theme for Children’s Week across the country, and the Queensland Children’s Week Association promotes and advocates for this to be upheld.

Article 31

2023 Children's Week Theme

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

The Children’s Week National Theme for 2023 is based on UNCRC Article 31: All Children have the right of the child to rest and leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities appropriate to the age of the child and to participate freely in cultural life and the arts.
