Harmony Day celebrations at The Infants' Home and at Ashfield's Carnival of Cultures

- March 25, 2016

Harmony Day is a day to celebrate Australia's cultural diversity, and the Infants' Home got involved by celebrating with our children, staff and local community to promote respect, unity and belonging.

Children's Activities to promote belonging and unity

To celebrate with children and promote a sense of belonging, The Infants’ Home centres organised craft activities with orange paper, as the colour orange represents harmony. Children traced their hands on paper, cut out and joined them all together to signify a sense of unity.

Shared Staff Lunch

Staff at The Infants' Home celebrated by holding a huge staff lunch, with everying brining a dish from their culture to share. We enjoyed chatting over a feast of noodles, pizza, salads, curries, fried rice, stuffed capsicums, dumplings, samosas, tirffle and pavlova!

The Infants' Home Stall at Ashfield Council's Carnival of Cultures

Once again we took part in the festivities at Ashfield Council’s Carnival of Cultures event on Sunday March 20 in beautiful Ashfield Park.  This is always a fun day out to celebrate the incredicble cultural diversity within our local community with children's activities, food and market stalls as well as invigorating  music and dance performances.

It's also a great opportunity for us to get out and about to chat to locals and raise awareness about the services and programs we have available for children and families. Thank you to all our families and friends who stopped by to say ‘Hi’ to us at The Infants’ Home’s information stall.
