Harmony Day is a day to celebrate Australian multiculturalism, based on the successful integration of migrants into our community.
Australia is the most successful multicultural country on earth and we should celebrate this and work to maintain it.
Harmony Day is about inclusiveness, respect and belonging for all Australians, regardless of cultural or linguistic background, united by a set of core Australian values.
Let's come together with friends and family and through schools, workplaces and our wider communities to celebrate our diversity on and beyond 21 March.
Please come dressed in Orange. Activities will be planned across the day, including a Performance about anti bully themes of cooperation, respect, inclusion, tolerance, care and compassion. The cost of the show is $10 per child - please make payment to office by Monday 18 March. The show is a gentle introduction to getting along with others and making friends. It is specially designed for children of all ages.
Orange is the colour chosen to represent Harmony Day. Traditionally, orange signifies social communication and meaningful conversations. It also relates to the freedom of ideas and encouragement of mutual respect. Choose to wear something orange on 21 March to show your support for cultural diversity and an inclusive Australia.
