3rd March: Te Rā O Te Tamariki – Children’s Day

Sunday 3 March, Children’s Day, will be a joyous celebration as it is every year. It’s also an opportunity for all of us taking part, to acknowledge the importance of safeguarding our children and putting their needs first. 

Our children and mokopuna are our legacy, they will lead and shape the future of our nation. Whether you are a parent, guardian, whānau member, educator or other member of our community, let’s extend the celebrations of the day into an ongoing commitment to protect the wellbeing and rights of those who are our greatest gift. Through aroha we can all help to create an environment that nurtures our tamariki. See what’s happening in your region, and read more here https://www.childrensday.org.nz/
