Stu­dents cel­e­brate di­ver­sity

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

SANTA Clara Pri­mary School has cel­e­brated cul­tural di­ver­sity at its Har­mony Day event.

Stu­dents filled the cam­pus with colour and cos­tumes to em­brace eth­nic­ity and di­ver­sity, and share as­pects of their cul­ture.

Pupils par­tic­i­pated in a cos­tume pa­rade, got in­volved with yoga, bocce and art, and lis­tened to tra­di­tional tales from around the world.

A shared morn­ing tea al­lowed stu­dents to sam­ple a range of cui­sine from around the world and took part in a spe­cial as­sem­bly where classes demon­strated the cul­tural pur­suits of a spe­cific coun­try.

Prin­ci­pal Richard Win Pe said he hoped stu­dents de­vel­oped a greater ap­pre­ci­a­tion and re­spect for each other’s cul­tural her­itage.

“At Santa Clara, we recog­nise the in­es­timable value which all mi­grant stu­dents bring and we re­ject all forms of racism,” he said. “We hon­our and sup­port Aus­tralians of what­ever creed or cul­ture and pledge to con­tinue to work with them to ad­vance Aus­tralia, with fair­ness.”
