Harmony Day

March21

Harmony Day is a time when everyone celebrates all the different cultures that make Australia unique. It is on the 21st of March. This day is about respecting others and trying to make the world a better place to live in. Harmony Day is caring about other people’s culture and traditions. You can join in the celebrations by wearing orange.

Did you know 45% of Australians have been born overseas or their parents are from overseas. In 3/4D we have students from Vietnam, Germany, Korea, Italy, Greece, England, Ireland, Israel, Kenya, Ukraine and Australia.

This morning we started with a whole school Harmony Day Assembly. Students were given a Harmony Day sticker and a Bullying No Way wristband. We all sang a special song for Harmony Day called Tell me your story.

In class we watched a short video about Harmony Day and we chose a Harmony Day colouring in sheet to do.

At 12.45pm the students in year 2, 3 and 4 went to the oval to participate in some fun teamwork activities organised by our SRC reps. We did a hopping race, sack race, egg and spoon race and a three-legged race. The activities were really fun and everyone got to have a go. Some students were given certificates for supporting others in a positive way.

We had lunch together as a whole school to celebrate Harmony Day. Students all got an icy-pole.

Check out photos from our Harmony Day activities:

The 21st of March also marks Bullying No Way! Day. This is a day to take a stand together against bullying.
This reminds us to stand up against bullying behaviour.

    Hi 3/4D!
    I think Harmony day means celebrating all the different cultures in Australia and respecting them. I loved all the activities. I liked the three legged race the most. I was with Paige. I hope everyone had an awesome day.

    Hi Grade 3/4D,
    I loved all of your photos showing what a fun day Harmony Day was. It was great to spend a fun day at school enjoying many activities but it was also great to remind each other how we should look after one another and to care for your friends. When I walk into your classroom I can always see that you do care for each other which is fantastic!
    Enjoy the last 2 weeks of term 1 in 3/4D!

    Hey 3/4D,
    Harmony Day means to me celebrating different cultures that make Australia. Harmony Day was a great day, everybody got a icy-pole and ate lunch together during the day all of the 2/3/4’s played lots of fun games there was three-legged race, egg and spoon race, sack race and three-legged batten race. In the end Harmony Day was a great day!

      Hi Paige,

      Thanks for asking the question. I think Harmony Day is important because it acknowledges the many different cultures that life here in Australia. Everyone belongs and we all play a part in making Australia a great place to live in.

      I really enjoyed seeing our SRC students running the teamwork activities with everyone. They all showed great leadership. I also enjoyed wiriting the blog post as a class. It is the first time this year 3\4D were in charge of writing the post together and it showed everyone the importance of celebrating Harmony Day.

      Best wishes from Miss Dickson
