Harmony Week – Everyone Belongs

Harmony Week – Everyone Belongs

Darwin High School students celebrated Australia’s multiculturalism and our school's diverse community with a Harmony event on Thursday 21 March at lunchtime.

2019 is the twentieth anniversary of Harmony Day and this year the event was renamed to Harmony Week to recognise the diversity of activities taking place across the nation and to include the United Nations Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination on 21 March.

Nine of our Stage 2 Community Studies students hosted a Harmony lunch on Thursday March 21. Each student cooked a traditional dish that represented their cultural background and invited family, friends and staff to participate. The event included a range of activities including, a speech about Harmony Day and what it means, a PowerPoint presentation exploring the different music styles of countries from around the world, some traditional Greek dancing and even, an Instaframe for the event and a recipe book featuring the harmony dishes made by the students.

Principal, Jill Hazeldine said

Australia is one of the most multicultural countries in the world and our school has an incredibly diverse range of cultural backgrounds, so it’s fantastic to see events like where staff, students and families are celebrating our differences and uniting behind our shared core values. Congratulations to everyone involved.

Our SIEU students also celebrated Harmony Week, hosting a togetherness celebration at FlipOut and sharing a traditional Australian meal – an aussie meat pie!
