In 2019, the day coincided with the United Nations’ International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
IGS Primary School students took part in a range of Harmony Day activities including entering a nationwide poster competition, head of Primary Languages Vilma Rotellini explained.
Across the campus students joined together to celebrate. A Kuyal House High School tutor group visited their Year 1 buddies, and the occasion was even more special because of Harmony Day.
“They always look forward to their meetings and spend the time reading and playing games,” IGS Japanese Teacher Lucy Sensei said.
“It has been really heartwarming to see the lovely relationships develop among these different year groups.
“Harmony Day and our ‘buddies’ program are such integral parts of the IGS strength of community.”
Kindergarten and Year 1 students also joined together in their language groups to take part in various games and language activities.
Listening to instructions in each language, the students had great fun participating the special event.
The teachers had great fun, too!
