On Tuesday 21 March 2023, Primary School students showcased their support for Harmony Week by coming to school dressed in traditional clothes from their cultural background or dressed in the colour orange to represent ‘harmony’.
This year’s theme for Harmony Week was “Everyone Belongs”, which aims to bring people together and foster a sense of community.
Harmony Week was first introduced in 1999 and has been a significant celebration in Australia, emphasising the importance of acceptance and inclusivity.
The Harmony Week celebrations, while a joyful occasion, also serves to raise awareness about the harms of discrimination and the need for inclusivity. By promoting a sense of togetherness and mutual respect, Harmony Week helps foster a more inclusive and welcoming community.
