On Wednesday the 21st of March A.I.I.C. celebrated Harmony Day with a focus on this year’s theme of ‘Racism No Way!’ A special assembly was held to mark the day. Mrs Banwa, our principal, in her opening address sent a strong message of “Everyone Belongs”. The students thoroughly enjoyed the morning assembly which included presentations on the theme by the Student Council, various nasheed and poetry performances, a cultural parade and to finish off, a rousing rendition of ‘We Are Australian’ by the whole school.
The highlight of the assembly was the didgeridoo performance by guest speaker and Ngutana Lui representative, Eric Ellis. Students were enthralled by the different animal sounds he was able to produce using the traditional instrument. The assembly was then followed by a rotation of cultural activities and games which tied in with another theme of Harmony Day, ‘Our diversity is our strength.’ In all it was a wonderful day and Insha’Allah students will be carrying the message of the day with them until next year’s Harmony Day swings around.
