Harmony Day 2010

Harmony Day is a nationwide event held on 21st March each year. The key message of Harmony Day is ‘Everyone Belongs’ with the aim of highlighting and addressing issues of cultural, racial and religious intolerance by promoting respect, fairness, inclusion and a sense of belonging for all.

This year to celebrate Harmony Day  the City of Tea Tree Gully Library held several ‘Hand Decorating Workshops’ specifically designed for children.
Each child was given a paper hand to decorate in any way they chose, along with lots of glitter, sequins, pom poms and stickers. The end result was absolutely fantastic with each hand representing the uniqueness and individuality of that child. The hands are on display throughout the Library for the next week or so, as a symbol of the cultural diversity and inclusiveness of our community.
So come and check them out!
