Students celebrate diversity
■ 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.
