National Day of Action Against Bullying & Violence and Harmony Day

Friday 20 March saw the whole school community coming together to celebrate and support the National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence and Harmony Day.  As a sign of unity and acceptance, students from across all three schools wore a white t’shirt.  They also participated in a range of activities that demonstrated a commitment to each other and the school community as a whole. 

The Junior and Senior School Student Council, under the careful guidance of Mrs Finley, Ms griffin, Miss McAllister and Mrs George, organised a series of activities for the students to enjoy with their buddies

As a gold coin donation event, the students will be able to purchase Buddy Bags for the Alannah and Madeline Foundation.  These Buddy Bags are used to support children who find themselves temporarily away from home as a result of bullying and violence within their life.

If you would like any more information about the Alannah and Madeline Foundation, you can visit www.amf.org.au/BuddyBags/

The Student Council would like to thank all students and community members for their support with this initiative. 

Throughout Week 7, the Junior School was buzzing with a number of activities to celebrate Harmony Week.  One of the highlights was on the Friday, when our Senior School buddies joined their Junior School buddies to participate in a series of activities. One of those, was to write a message of harmony and friendship on a leaf. In the coming weeks, the leaves will be placed onto a friendship tree which will be on display in the Junior School. Together the students also made friendship bracelets to wear as a stand against bullying. The teachers and students then thoroughly enjoyed a shared morning tea, kindly donated by the P&FA.

Other activities throughout the week included classroom discussions about every child’s culture and heritage, placing a sticker on a map where they were born, decorating hands with cultural symbols and decorating classroom windows with messages of harmony. The Year 3 and 4 students were also privileged to watch a cultural performance by the Yirra Yakin Performing Arts group. To end the week, all the students from Kindy to Year 12 gathered on the oval to sing, “We’re all in this together”.
