Children's Week

Children's Week is an annual event held during the fourth week in October. Celebrating the right of children to enjoy childhood, it is also a time for youngsters to discover and demonstrate their talents, skills and abilities.

These Children’s Week events are presented in partnership with the Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development.
