Harmony Day 2014

21 March 2014 is Harmony Day.

The message of Harmony Day is Everyone Belongs. It is a day to celebrate Australia’s diversity. It is a day of cultural respect for everyone who calls Australia home – from the traditional owners of this land to those who have come from many countries around the world.

Our school participated by attending the celebrations at Bentley Park. The years 5/6 boys and girls participated in the art exhibition. The art was Islamic in nature and supplemented by authentic hadith and Quran quotations. Alhamdulillah, we are teaching the students to make Dawa. Inshallah Allah reward us for our efforts.

Harmony Day is an Australian Government programme and coincides with the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

There are some fascinating stats about Australia’s diversity that can be good conversation-starters. Did you know…

• Around 45 per cent of Australians were born overseas or have at least one parent who was born overseas.

• People from over 200 countries make up the Australian community.

• More than 300 languages are spoken in Australian homes.

• Apart from English the most common languages spoken in Australia are Mandarin, Italian, Arabic, Cantonese, Greek, Vietnamese, Tagalog/Filipino, Spanish and Hindi.

• More than 60 Indigenous languages are spoken in Australia.

These facts are taken from ABS 2011 Census Data. Check out the Australian Bureau of Statistics website for more interesting facts and figures.
