Our Photo of the Week is of Macgregor Primary School kindergarten student Arianna making patterns during Harmony Day yesterday.

Schools across Canberra have been participating in Harmony Day celebrations this week. Harmony Day celebrates our cultural diversity – it is about inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone. We think you'll agree these photos of Mawson Primary School students and teachers celebrating their cultural heritage are worth a share!

Mawson Primary celebrated Harmony Day today with activity rotations and an assembly. We all really enjoyed learning about different cultures and trying different food. The assembly was a fun way to end the day!
