Thomas Mitchell Primary students shone a light on different cultures to build understanding and respect.
The Endeavour Hills school celebrated Harmony Day on Wednesday 28 March.
“The purpose of Harmony Day is to strengthen our sense of belonging, respect and understanding of cultural diversity,” teacher Stephanie Mackenzie said.
“Our families represent 70 countries and we speak 54 different languages at home.
“Our staff represent 31 countries, and can speak 17 languages.
“We teach both Indonesian and Mandarin as additional languages.”
On Harmony Day, students participated in an Indigenous Australian dance workshop and performed a Sri Lankan dance at a special assembly.
“Harmony Day at our school is a day of cultural respect for everyone who calls Australia home – from the traditional owners of this land to those who have come from many countries around the world,” Ms Mackenzie said.
“By participating in cultural diversity activities we can learn and understand how all Australians from diverse backgrounds belong to this nation and enrich it.”
