Harmony Day is a day to celebrate a commitment to harmony and mutual respect in a culturally diverse nation. The event’s major objectives are focused on reducing prejudice and to promote respect, fairness and a sense of belonging for everyone including those of different nationalities, cultures, religions and sexuality. The colour used to represent Harmony Day is orange. Students and staff are encouraged to wear orange ribbons and join in celebrations at lunch-time.
