Children's Week Grants

Children's Week 2017 is celebrated from 21st-29th October, 2017.

Children's Week is an annual event celebrated in Australia held around the fourth Wednesday in October. 

In 1996, it was decided to adopt a permanent theme 'A Caring World Shares' as a reflection of Children's Week aims while, at the same time, acknowledging the designated year on national posters and other printed materials.

A diverse range of events and activities are organised at National, State and Local levels.

These focus the attention of the wider community on children, their needs and achievements.

Children's Week celebrates the right of children to enjoy childhood. It is also a time for children to demonstrate their talents, skills and abilities.

Thousands of children and their families around the country are involved in activities and events during 'the week' through the participation of schools, playgroups, childcare, kindergartens, cultural groups, libraries, departments and community groups.

Strathbogie Shire Council is committed to children and families and supports Childrens Week by providing funds to local preschools to deliver an event to celebrate Childrens Week in their communities.


Euroa Kindergarten, Avenel Kindergarten, Nagambie Preschool and Violet Town Kindergarten may apply each year for a grant up to $500.

Funding is provided for the provision of projects and activities that celebrate Childrens Week and must meet the following criteria:

  • Held between 21st-29th October, 2017
  • Is open to all the community
  • Celebrates children and demonstrates their talents, skills and abilities.
