This year The City of Tea Tree Gully Library celebrated Harmony Day over two fabulous and fun filled weeks. In the first week of celebrations we held several Harmony Day themed Storytime sessions and Hand Decorating workshops both specifically designed for the littler members of our Community. These sessions were not only lots of fun but also educational, promoting respect, fairness, inclusion and a sense of belonging for all.
In the second week the Community was invited to an evening of culture when the Library played host to the annual Kulture Klub event. Held every year to mark Harmony Day, this event, run by the City of Tea Tree Gully Council’s Youth Development Team, is a celebration of cultural diversity featuring dance, art and cuisine from around the world. Those in attendance were treated to displays of Tai Chi, Karate, Irish Dancing, Salsa and African Drumming. Guests were also given the opportunity to sample multicultural food including Japanese, Italian and Indian as well as participate in various craft workshops.
With the key message of Harmony Day this year being ‘Everyone Belongs’ it was fantastic to see so many people joins us in celebrating this very important event.
