Children's Week is an annual event celebrated in Australia held around the fourth Wednesday in October to celebrate the right of children to enjoy childhood, promoting the Rights of the Child as proclaimed by the United Nations in 1954 and to remind us of our responsibility to advocate for children as citizens and their right to a positive childhood.

Proudly sponsored by The Meerilinga Young Children's Foundation, the Shire of East Pilbara hosts a week long calendar of events annually to engage the community in a variety of activities in order to facilitate, support and encourage children and their families to celebrate, play and discover together.
