Alstonville kids put their hands together for harmony

THE staff and students at Alstonville Public School took time out of their day today to celebrate cultural diversity, inclusiveness and belonging.

Our school Harmony Day celebration included a Sea of Hands, which was made up of over 1000 hands, and had messages about respect, harmony and anti-bullying.

Our principal Mrs Cate Moore was involved in assisting students to place their special messages down in our Sea of Hands.

"At school children learn how to identify bullying behaviour, strategies to deal with the bully, how to be a proactive bystander and how to self-protect and break the cycle of being a victim," Mrs Moore told The Northern Star previously.

Alstonville Public School invited special guest speakers along to our Harmony Day assembly and many students from different cultural background shared to our school audience what cultural diversity and a sense of belonging means to them.

Staff were also involved in their own special celebration of Harmony and held a special orange morning tea in the staffroom and many also dressed in orange.
