RANGEBANK PRIMARY CELEBRATES HARMONY DAY
Made in India | On 08, May 2018
The Rangebank Community has hosted visiting Indian delegates over 2 weeks in Australia. The students from Bluebells presented many interesting facts to the audience about India and the diversity that is India. The children spoke about their school and the special relationship with Rangebank Primary established now for over 5 years. This is the second visit from Rangebank’s sister school in Delhi with students at Rangebank looking forward to visiting Bluebells in the future.
The special assembly was a great afternoon with children dressing in national ethnic costume or wearing orange as a sign of Harmony.
The children spoke and danced for the audience. It was a memorable experience, full of culture and interest. The principal of Rangebank, Mr Colin Avery said,
“That the bonds that have been established through regular skyping sessions and visits to each other’s school, has cemented a long-term relationship that provides benefits to both schools…Harmony Day is about acceptance, not just tolerance”.
