Due to bad weather last term we had to postpone our Harmony Day celebrations until the beginning of Term 3. Fortunately, this did not impact on the vibe of the day with everyone turning up and having a great time together.
The students ran the Harmony Day presentation in Years 10, 11 and 12 rooms where guests were treated to some incredible cultural dancing from the Ginibi Dancers and Aunty Nicole. After the dances the students put on a small fashion parade representing multiculturalism and the different styles of fashion from around the world. Following the fashion parade were a group of students from New Zealand who performed the Hakka and danced with poi’s. Master Tom also demonstrated Tai Chi to the audience.
At the conclusion of all the performances, everyone went downstairs to share a delicious lunch and have a yarn. Lunch showcased different types of food from all around the world and went down incredibly well with all of our guests, students and staff.
After lunch everyone headed off to various areas around the school that had been set up for activities such as African drumming, arts and crafts, henna tattooing, sand art and line dancing. Everyone really enjoyed the activities and we all left at the end of the day feeling happy but tired from the big, fun day.
