Well done to all of our students for their excellent participation in our NAIDOC celebration activities last term! We began the day with a smoking ceremony, performed by Awabakal Land Council elders, followed by singing and dancing performances from the Millibah students from HSPA. Students also enjoyed taking part in a variety of activities throughout the day, including traditional dance, languages, face painting, and canvas art. Thank you to Miss Chapman for organising such a great day.

Harmony Day

Harmony Day

We started the day by looking at the Japanese culture and we learnt that in Japan they have a special day that is a tradition in their culture , it is called Children’s Day. It is held on the 5th day of May every year. It is a special day when children all over Japan eat special treat food, get presents from their families and have a special dinner with the ones that love them.

In the streets the children hang very special decorations called Koinobori. These fish have beautiful scales and are special in Japan as they show the children strength and teach the children to never to give up.

We made our own Koinobori.

Our buddies came and  listened to the story “Silly Billy” with us and then they helped us make our own worry dolls.

We had a wonderful day celebrating Harmony Day 2016.

What a fantastic time we all had at the sports carnival despite the wet weather. We sat with our house colours and cheered our team members on during the running races.

Some of us received ribbons for coming first, second or third in our races. We were super fast runners!
