​Celebrating Harmony Day

​INGLEWOOD SS P-10 IN PERFECT HARMONY

You don’t get harmony when everyone sings the same note, says Doug Floyd and the same could be said for a school
community.
 
Inglewood SS P-10 represents a diverse range of cultures and the full breadth of these were enjoyed during the recent Harmony Day celebrations held on Thursday, 30 March.

Harmony Day is about inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone in this great country of Australia. In fact, having people from all over the world with many different cultures and backgrounds helps our youth be more innovative, knowledgeable and connected with the world.

At Inglewood SS P-10, students coloured a paper-doll figure to represent themselves and placed it on the large world map showcased on the day.  Figures were situated according to country of origin/heritage and the results were certainly fascinating.  Whilst there was a large Australian, United Kingdom and European emphasis, as expected, nevertheless there were some interesting additions to the map which made for lively discussion.

Wearing orange (the colour of Harmony Day) or an item of their country’s origin/heritage further added to the fun of the day and the celebration of diversity was truly enjoyed by all.  It was a great day to reflect on the importance of respecting each other and our differences, which actually help us to live in greater harmony.
