Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day – 4 August 2016

Thursday, 4th August 2016 is Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day, a day specially marked to celebrate their strength, their culture and their community. Children’s Day is celebrated every year on the 4th of August, and provides an opportunity for all Australians to support our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, while extending our knowledge, understanding, and relationships.  This year’s theme is My Country, Our Country, We All Belong.

Have you planned anything special for Children’s Day? Perhaps the day will spur you to act on something you have wanted to do for some time, and we encourage you to consider what meaningful contribution you can make to this day. Is it time to check how you’re progressing the commitments in your RAP? Or time to set aside space to start writing a RAP? Maybe your first step is finding out more about the Country you live, work or play on.
