On 20 March, Marie Bashir Public School celebrated Harmony Day. Harmony Day was established 20 years ago to celebrate Australia’s cultural diversity. It is a day of cultural respect for everyone who calls Australia home. Harmony Day is all about togetherness and kindness, about sharing experience and knowledge.
It was very exciting to see the students from Marie Bashir Public School wear their national dress. We are very fortunate to share each other’s traditions, history, culture and food. I understand that parents have scrambled to find orange t-shirts, often frustratingly difficult to source but gleefully worn by their child.
Thank you to all parents for supporting Harmony Day and ensuring it was a success.
