On March 21st our class ran the Harmony Day Assembly. Harmony Day is celebrated around Australia on 21st of March each year. It’s a day when all Australians celebrate our cultural diversity. It’s also a time to reflect on where Australia has come from and recognising the traditional owners of this land. Everyone is a welcome part of our country, regardless of their background. That’s what makes Australia so special. The theme for Harmony Day this year is Sport: Play, Engage, Inspire. Sport develops a sense of belonging, acceptance and understanding of other cultures for everyone. On Harmony Day we all wear orange because orange is an active colour and suggests celebration.
During the Harmony Day assembly our Buddy class, Mrs Shannon’s class sang “The Octopus’s Garden.” They did a great job. Then we shared the Harmony Day Dolls we made with them and the whole school joined us in singing “I’d like to teach the world to sing.” We all sounded great.
