Harmony Day

Harmony Day is 21st March but we celebrated on Tuesday 26th March. It was a celebration of our school's cultural diversity and belonging. More than this, it was a reminder that all cultures, religions and races should be valued, respected and celebrated every day, not just on this day.

Respect and understanding are vital to making the steps towards the elimination of discrimination and racism of any kind. Racism and discrimination are not accepted at Albion Primary School, ever.

Every one of us has a value far greater than what any label, stereotype, judgement, or misconception has laid on them. Harmony Day reminds us of the vibrant multicultural society in which we live. Our school has such a rich multicultural community.

To celebrate, we came together to share in our belonging and to ensure everyone here feels included and valued. It is something each of us can work towards not just on this day, but in our lives every day.

Thank you to those students who dressed in their cultural clothes or wore orange. Orange is the colour of Harmony Day. Traditionally, orange signifies social communication and meaningful conversations. It also relates to freedom of ideas and encouragement of mutual respect.

We  can all help to make every day harmonious at Albion Primary School and in the wider community!
