SCHOOL CEL­E­BRATES STU­DENTS’ DI­VER­SITY

Joondalup Times - - NEWS -

HAR­MONY Day cel­e­bra­tions filled Ed­dy­s­tone Pri­mary School in Heathridge last month.

Deputy prin­ci­pal Alec Kan­ganas said ap­pre­ci­at­ing other cul­tures was “highly im­por­tant” in the mul­ti­cul­tural school, which hosts an in­ten­sive English cen­tre for 110 chil­dren.

“With the main­stream classes, our school pop­u­la­tion com­prises ap­prox­i­mately 40 na­tion­al­i­ties,” he said.

“The chil­dren work and play con­struc­tively and are very happy.

“Our di­ver­sity makes our school a great place to work and play in.”

In the lead up to Har­mony Day on March 21, the school in­vited the Perth Rain­bow Per­for­mance Club to present a Chi­nese fan dance.

Ed­u­ca­tion as­sis­tant June Liu then sang a tra­di­tional Chi­nese opera.

Chil­dren also coloured and dec­o­rated hand prints to make a har­mony tree.
