Meerilinga supports Children’s Week Council of Australia in launching professional webinar

Children’s Week will be celebrated across Australia from the 23rd October to the 31st October 2021. This year, Children’s Week activities will offer the opportunity for Australians to connect, following the challenges and cancellations that marked 2020 for some of the States.

Meerilinga, WA’s convenor of Children’s Week is working in collaboration with the Children’s Week Council of Australia to support the launch of our webinar featuring Australia’s Children and National Children’s Commissioner, Anne Hollonds.

Targeted at those working in children’s policy, agencies, education and others with an interest in children’s rights, the webinar gives insight into children’s concerns and questions relating to their experiences during the pandemic and our community’s recovery. Anne provides children with guidance and honesty, including initiatives that promote safe connection, both online and in line with social distancing requirements.

This Children’s Week webinar is supported by Early Childhood Education and Care in the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment.
