Katherine celebrates Harmony Day | Picture Gallery

Thousands of Australian schools, workplaces, community centres and sporting clubs across the nation celebrated our rich cultural diversity today.

Katherine South Primary School hosted a range of activities to deepen students understanding of cultural diversity as part of Harmony Day. 

Students participated in Malaysian language classes, origami making and  African marble games. 

One British teacher taught his class football war cries from Liverpool and West Ham. 

Roper Gulf Regional Council held a “bring-a-plate-from-your-culture” lunch to celebrate the day. 

Staff members bought traditional Indian, Nepalese, Italian, South African and Australian dishes. 

“We have a really multicultural staff and recognising the value cultural diversity brings to the workplace is really important,” Senior HR coordinator Irenee McCreevy said.
