Harmony Day

St Francis College recognised the 15th annual Harmony Day on Friday 20th March by inviting our school community to a delicious breakfast where guests had the opportunity to see our FANTASTIC Samoan dancers perform. Some staff, parents and students in Years 10-12 also had the opportunity to hear Chris Miranda, President of the Refugee Association in Logan, speak on the plight of asylum seekers in Australia. His presentation was very thought-provoking as we learned of the harsh realities faced by those seeking asylum.

Harmony Day celebrates Australia’s cultural diversity. It’s about inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone. The message for all of us: Harmony doesn't just happen - It's a community effort. We are so lucky to have such a multicultural community where diversity is not only accepted, but appreciated; a community of families who always display a “How can I help?” attitude, regardless of their own situation.
