What is Harmony Day and why do we celebrate it?

Harmony Day is observed annually on 21 March in Australia. 

Harmony Day is intended to celebrate the inclusive nature of Australia and promote a tolerant and culturally diverse society.  

Harmony Day is represented by an orange ribbon, and participants are encouraged to wear orange. Traditionally, orange signifies social communication and meaningful conversations. It also relates to the freedom of ideas and encouragement of mutual respect. This is important for Australia, and more specifically our school, as we promote inclusivity for all cultures.

The continuing message of Harmony Day is 'Everybody Belongs' and its annual observance aims to encourage inclusiveness, respect and belonging for all Australians, regardless of cultural background, and celebrate core Australian values.
