Yesterday, Learning Lizards celebrated Harmony Day. It is a day of cultural respect for anyone who calls Australia home – from the traditional Indigenous owners of the land, to those who have come across the seas to share our home. By participating in Harmony Day activities, we can learn how all Australians from all backgrounds belong to and enrich our nation.
As part of our celebrations, we had our first ever Skype session with 4B from Mildura! We each shared different ways of saying Hello. Before our Skype session, we talked about how we greet each other in our Community Circle. We shared ways of saying hello in different languages with 4B. We spoke in Italian, French, Greek, Fijian, Korean, Auslan and more.
It was also National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence. We read a book called ‘Enemy Pie’. To raise awareness of bullying, we had a discussion about what bullying actually is and created posters to display in the school. We worked very hard on our posters because the topic was important to us.
