Our Lady's celebrates Harmony Week

The Our Lady's community came together to celebrate our diversity during Harmony Week from March 16-20.

“Our Lady's is a vibrant and multicultural community representing a rich tapestry of cultural groups including Vietnamese, Sudanese, Indian, Greek, Samoan and many more," Principal Mrs Goodwin said.

“With all that is going on in the world at the moment, it was indeed a welcome relief to enjoy ourselves with some fun activities and events.

“Thank you to all those who got involved and particularly the Social Justice and Cultural Committee for organising such a wonderful week of celebrations."

Harmony Week celebrations at Our Lady's kicked off Spanish style with a Latin dancing workshop led by Spanish teacher Mrs Joanna Caldwell.

This was followed by a Hands for Harmony Activity organised by the Social Justice and Cultural Committee.

The pavement outside J block was transformed into a colourful kaleidoscope of chalk drawings as students and staff created messages of hope and harmony.

The week ended on a high note on Friday with a joyous lunch-time performance of Our Lady's cultural dance groups and talented choir.

Staff and students clapped along as students from the Contemporary Dance Group, African Dance Group and A Cappella Vocal Group showcased their skills.

Afterwards, everyone came together for an impromptu Bollywood dance.
