community awareness of children’s achievements
The Children’s Week Association wholeheartedly
supports the current community concern to increase
the participation of children in physical education
and to halt the trend to poor nutrition and childhood
The need for physical education from appropriately
trained personnel and encouragement to schools
and families to provide fat, balanced nutrition
for children is imperative. The pattern for wellness
and wellbeing in later life is set in childhood;
the cost to the community of low levels of physical
and poor diet cannot be ignored.

Australia is concerned for the condition and rights
of children in Australia and throughout the world
and asserts that children have the right to be
protected against abuse of any kind and to have
their wellbeing and safety assured.
