The children at Dunsborough's Our Lady of the Cape Primary School enjoyed celebrating Harmony Day at the end of March.

Harmony Day is a time to celebrate Australian multiculturalism and the successful integration of migrants into our community.

Our Lady of the Cape students were very fortunate to have many parents and teachers share and give them information about their own cultural backgrounds.

There were some amazing stories, photographs, presentations, dance, craft, food and sensory experiences shared on the day.

The students found every presentation was extremely interesting and the students listened beautifully. Australia is one of the most successful multicultural countries in the world and we should celebrate this and work to maintain it. For the first time this year, harmony celebrations were extended to a week to encourage more inclusiveness, respect and belonging for all Australians, regardless of cultural or linguistic background.
