Coldstream Primary held its inaugural Harmony Day festivity in March 2017 and the school was thrown open to an afternoon of cultural exploration, storytelling, singing and dancing.
Since then the children regularly start the year immersing themselves in who they are, where they come from, the gifts they bring in terms of strengths and talents.
We invite the community and other schools and kinders to share this special day with us.
Each Harmony Day (usually in the 3rd week of March) ends with a multicultural performer who keeps the audience laughing and engaged.
This year Sean Choolburra the indigenous performer and comic kept the audience in stitches as he imparted his culture through anecdotes and dance.
Last year the magnetic Pacific Islander, Bernard, enchanted the audience with his clever dancing and tricks.
The year before, children explored their European backgrounds and presented aboriginal stories. It was a huge success and culminated in a colourful Bollywood incursion.
