On 21 March each year, Australia celebrates Harmony Day; a day of celebrating the diversity of our multicultural country.
At Haileybury Rendall School, this is particularly significant as many members of our School community come from different cultures around world.
This year the School was fortunate to have received generous funding from the Northern Territory Government to assist in the celebrations.
The staff and students were treated to cultural performances such as African and Indian dances and traditional games. Students played a traditional Chinese game called Jiànzi, which requires players to keep a weighted shuttlecock in the air, without using their hands. The students had fun finding innovative ways to the game in play.
All the students were encouraged to wear something orange to break out of their comfort zones and enjoy being different ‘together’.
Harmony and cultural diversity are very important values at Haileybury Rendall School and it was wonderful to see the students embracing these ideas and celebrating their community.
Thank you to the Senior School Student Leaders for organising the Harmony Day festivities.
We look forward to more activities during the year.
