Bright, colourful, interesting cultural outfits. Orange everywhere. A sea of ribbons waving in the air. Flags from nations all over the world. These are some of the sights you would have seen at Mitcham Primary on 19th March, Harmony Day.
We celebrated Harmony Day with a whole school assembly where we heard from our school leaders about the cultural diversity at Mitcham Primary and learnt more about the message ‘everyone belongs’. We watched a Chinese Dragon Dance, the students wearing cultural dress participated in a parade and we sang the song ‘We Are Australian’ together whilst waving colourful ribbons.
Our classes worked collaboratively to create displays around the school including a giant Harmony Day 2021 sign made from orange ribbon. We hope you got a chance to see these displays at drop off and pick up. Many classes also met with their buddies on this special day.
It was a great day celebrating the diversity of our Mitcham school community.
