Children’s Day Launches Into Cyberspace
The Children’s Day website officially launched into cyberspace today with the support of master storyteller Dick Weir and an enthusiastic crowd of children in Te Papa marae.
“I am really pleased to be part of the website launch for such an important day,” says Dick. “The Children’s Day website is like a big playground for children. It is packed with stories, activities, games, as well as educational tools. It is an exciting adventure for both adults and children to explore this awesome site together.”
The website (www.childrensday.org.nz) is designed to support both children and adults to celebrate Children’s Day, which is on Sunday 31 0ctober this year. It features images and activities on the key themes for Children’s Day this year — the tuna (our native eel) and the key message of praise and encouragement.
Child, Youth and Family is the implementation agency for Children’s Day and manages this website. Liz Butterfield, the Director of NetSafe, says that the website provides a safe environment for children to learn and explore.
“In the second year of the Children’s Day website, Child, Youth and Family continue to set a model of best practice for organisations that promote the online environment for children. Bringing children online is a responsibility and we must empower them with safety information,” she says.
