■ Kar­ratha Se­nior High School cel­e­brated Har­mony Day on March 21 with a full day event.

Staff and stu­dents ac­knowl­edged the in­ter­na­tional day for cul­tural di­ver­sity with a range of fun and ed­u­ca­tional ac­tiv­i­ties held at re­cess and lunchtime.

All stu­dents were en­ti­tled to a sausage siz­zle and took part in a tug of war at re­cess.

At lunchtime, there was a cer­e­mony and slices of cake, iced in the rep­re­sen­ta­tive Har­mony Day colour of or­ange, were given out to stu­dents. There was also a dis­play of henna tat­too­ing which stu­dents have been study­ing in art classes.

Kar­ratha Se­nior High School stu­dent well­be­ing staff mem­ber Jen­nifer Glew said Har­mony Day was an im­por­tant op­por­tu­nity for stu­dents to learn more about cul­tures that are dif­fer­ent from their own.

“At our school we have a fair few dif­fer­ent cul­tures,” she said.

“From a teacher’s point-ofview, Har­mony Day is to try and bring ev­ery­one to­gether and say it’s okay that we have all these cul­tures and we can all get along har­mo­niously.”

This is the third year Kar­ratha Se­nior High School has cel­e­brated Har­mony Day.
