SNAICC – Celebrating Our Children for 30 Years

‘Our children are the youngest people from the longest living culture in the world,

Our children are growing up strong with connection to family, community and country.
Our children are the centre of our families and the heart of our communities.
They are our future and the carriers of our story.

‘This year, we invite communities to take a walk down memory lane,

‘We look back at all of the amazing moments we’ve shared with our children over the years,

‘We look back to see what we’ve achieved, and decide where we want to go

‘If you have celebrated Children’s Day at any time during the past 30 years,
we would love to hear from you. … ‘
