Harmony Day

22/03/2016
Our school has a rich cultural diversity that makes Woodridge State High School a unique learning environment. This was showcased on Monday 21st at our cultural celebrations for Harmony Day.
 

Harmony Day is Australia’s largest national multicultural event. The central message for Harmony Day is that ‘everyone belongs’, reinforcing the importance of inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone in Australia. This Year the theme message of Harmony day was “Our Diversity is our Strength.”

This is certainly true of our school today with so many students, who come from varied and diverse backgrounds and experiences, but who support and welcome each other.

The students gave an amazing display of colourful cultural costumes and 35 National flags were lined up through the school to provide a Guard of Honour to our distinguished guests.

The guests included the Australian of the Year David Morrison AO, and the Young Australians of the Year, Nick Marchesi and Lucas Patchett.  They were invited by the Principal Sharon Schultz to officially open the Harmony Stage, a place for cultural gatherings in the school.

Following the official ceremonies, students gave a free lunchtime concert at the Harmony stage to show their diverse musical talents and celebrate together.

Woodridge students consistently highlight the importance of our shared values and cultural traditions with celebrations like Harmony Day.
