Harmony Day Bookmarks
Students can design a bookmark with art, words, or poetry to show their understanding of what Harmony Day really means.​ Each school then chooses 5 to send to the Harmony Day Commitee so that they can be printed and distributed with the Harmony Day package next year. 


Photography and Writing Contest
​​Students snap photos that e​xplore the cultural traditions of family, school, or community. A short 200-word caption must be included with the photo.


Passport Folio

Students prepare an electronic portfolio (based on the structure of a passport) showcasing each student’s personal cultural heritage and family history​​.  Templates and exemplars coming soon.​​


Students research and publish documents, videos (cooking, immigration background, cultural heritage, etc.) and artwork based on their unique ethnicity and history using PowerPoint.  Students can share these with their peers, at assemblies, with other schools (through the internet?) and in other classrooms.

MONTH OF LOVE

Changing lives one month at a time - our own Rhonda Draper from SD23 leads this initiative with students throughout the district.



General Event and Activity Ideas
  • Talk it up: celebrate the theme for 2013 of Many stories – One Australia and meet someone new from your class, school or community and learn about their culture. Do an oral history project by interviewing someone from a different country and share it with others. You could write, record or even film the interview.
  • Sport, dancing and eating: play world sports together and involve everyone, learn new dances from countries across the world, or enjoy foods of different cultures.
  • Arts and crafts: use your creative abilities to make something that symbolises the different cultures of your local community. You could even hold a poster or art competition.
  • Music and sounds: apply your musical talents to reflect your experience of different cultures or traditions — rhyme, rap, or rock to a story about culture and experience. You could even hold a concert for everyone to enjoy.
  • Listen and learn: invite an immigrant to Canada to come and share their story and culture with your class. You could even research more information about their story or write about your own.​
