Harmony Day

Harmony Day has become one of the most popular events on the Rooty Hill High School Calendar. It is held in conjunction with the Department of Immigration and Citizenship's Annual Harmony Day in mid March each year and 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. By participating in Harmony Day activities, we can learn and understand how all Australians from diverse backgrounds equally belong to this nation and enrich it. This is especially important considering the cultural diversity of students at Rooty Hill High School. Almost 50 % of students at Rooty Hill High School are from a Non-English Speaking Background.

The theme for Harmony Day each year is for students to wear the colour orange or their traditional cultural clothing.

On the morning of Harmony Day students participate in a harmony day lesson which centres around a different theme each year.

Students from our Learning Neighbourhood Primary Schools attend the concert showcasing student performances and students from our SRC run stalls and activities throughout the day to keep students entertained.
