Harmony Week celebrations were a huge success. Children participated in stall activities conducted from Monday 18 to Thursday 21 March, as well as dress-up day on 21 March. The stalls featured blue meringues (representing the ‘clean water’ theme), biscuits and slices made by the students (with wonderful support from their parents), as well as beautiful friendship bracelets (hand made by students) and shell decorating (with shells recycled from a dredging operation). Children also enjoyed looking at a display of Asian dolls in national costume and Italian dancing with Simona Demaio. Over $840.00 was raised to support clean water in Africa. Sincere thanks to all concerned.
Our children are empowered to contribute and make a difference in their world, both locally and globally. Many thanks and congratulations to our hard working students who committed to this project for one year:
- Maddie F
- Chloe H
- Hanna-Grace T
- Matilda S
- Ava O
- Atticus S
The project started this time last year when these students attended the United Nations Association of Australia (WA) Parliament House Leadership Program. Throughout the year they have involved all Year 5 students in different aspects of water filtration and now the whole school through the stall activities.
Furthermore, the stalls were conducted by the above students with the fabulous support of our Year 6 Mentors. Many thanks to the Mentors for giving up their lunchtimes last week to raise funds for those in need of clean water. Congratulations abound!
Students also showcased their Digital Technology and ICT (Information and Communication Technology) skills during Harmony Day. The Year 2 students in Room 1 filmed, produced and edited their very own iMovie which you can view here. The Year 5 and 6 students in Room 11 created informative and eye catching digital infographics. Here is an example by Jasmine W in Room 11.
Finally the Year 2 and 3 students in Room 2 shared their cultural backgrounds using an online collaborative tool called Padlet. Click on the image below to view.
