Wellington City Council’s event at Civic Square on Friday

What a day and what a success! Happy Children's Day! This year we received over 120 registered events! The events spanned as far as the Chatham Island's with some attracting thousands of people.

A big thank you, and a well done to everyone involved, Children's Day would not be the same without you.

I had the joy to make it down to the Wellington City Council's event on Friday. The day was filled with dancing, games, face painting and a special appearance from the Children's Commissioner Judge Andrew Becroft.

If anyone has any photographs from any of the events and would like to share these, please feel free to send these to and I'll put them up on our Facebook page.

If you would like to share a fun story, or something really great that happened on the day please get in touch, I would love to hear about these!

Just a note to keep Children's Day in mind for next year, and to make sure you register as soon as you can to get your resource pack. The temporary tattoos were a particular favourite this year! Registrations at

I really hope that everyone had a fantastic day, how could you not!

Here's to Children's Day 2018 let's make it even bigger!

Thank you again

Children's Day Coordinator
