The 4th August is National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day (Children’s Day) and it is a day celebrated across the country each year.  Children’s Day is a time Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and communities and all Australians, celebrate the strengths and culture of children. It is an opportunity to show support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, as well as learn about the crucial impact that culture, family and community play in the life of every.  

Also in this edition, as East Gippsland prepares to go back in to lockdown and returning to Learn@Home, we wanted to share with you some resources that might be useful during this time which you will find on the second page.  There is also a range of different activities for presechoolers, children and young people on the last page.  We would like to encoruage you to tell us…

‘What is one thing we can improve or do differently to assist children, young people and families in East Gippsland during lockdown?’

We would love to hear from children, young people, parents, carers, grandparents, and people who work with children and young people!
