Wollongong Public School is celebrating Harmony Day in a big way!
Next Tuesday, the 21st of March could all students bring a small plate of international food to share with their buddy class and come dressed in their national costume or orange mufti clothes.
The following events have been organised for the day:
1:10 – 3:00 International Lunch and Buddy Class Activities Students will get together with their buddy class to share an international picnic lunch and participate in Harmony Day activities. All students will need to bring a small plate of food to share and may want to bring a picnic rug to sit on. Please ensure that you list the ingredients contained in the food you provide as some children cannot eat certain foods. Any parents wishing to provide hot food should deliver it to their child's classroom at 12.30pm. There will be limited refrigeration facilities available for storing food on the day.
3:30 – 5:30 Community Entertainment Afternoon Parents and families are welcome to join in the celebrations! Wear something orange or your national costume, and bring a picnic rug or fold up chair to join us for an afternoon of food and entertainment. You will be entertained by the Karenni Dance Group, traditional Aboriginal music and other entertainment including some of our own students. Students must be accompanied by their parents to this event. The Macedonian Welfare Association will provide a food stall, and an Aussie sausage sizzle will be available for a small cost.
We look forward to seeing you and your family at this wonderful celebration of diversity.
