To start our Harmony Week, we put flags along the fences as you walk into our school, Glen Osmond Primary. This started a lot of conversations about different countries, where students came from, where their families are and their cultural backgrounds.
Later, our whole school joined together on the oval to make a huge human Harmony Day 2017. A parent from our school, Tim Ash from "Tropo Drones", used a drone to take a fantastic arial photo of our sign. We are very proud of all our students for embracing Harmony Week and participating in activities with their buddy classes, resulting in brilliant presentations at our assembly.
The feeling of community and respect for each other was evident at our assembly and throughout the school. The message that everyone is different yet the same was clearly seen in all class presentations in many varied, wonderful ways.
Our school Wellbeing Committee organised a fabulous morning tea with parents after our Harmony Day Assembly and the range of food from various cultures was amazing. It was fantastic to see so many parents and family members joining in our Harmony Week festivities, enjoying the assembly’s entertainment then networking with other members of our school community. Our primary focus in KidsMatter, Component 1 is promoting a positive school community and we believe our Harmony Week showed just how positive and united our school is.
