Children's Week WA is being held from 18 to 26 October 2015. It is an annual opportunity for the community to engage in a variety of activities that facilitate, support and encourage children and their families to play, learn and grow together.
Highlights of the week are the Family FunSafe Day and WA Children's Week Awards, both sponsored by the Department of Local Government and Communities.
The Family FunSafe Day at Whiteman Park on Sunday 25 October features free activities for children and young people, and information for parents and families.
The WA Children's Week Awards honour outstanding individuals and organisations that make a significant contribution to improving opportunities for children, families and the community. The awards presentation will be held at Perth Zoo on Wednesday 28 October.
Children's Week WA is convened by Meerilinga. More information and a calendar of events is available on the Children's Week WA website.
