Harmony Day and National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence – Thursday 17 March
Harmony Day occurs every year on 21 March, with National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence occurring on 18 March.  Jindalee State School will be celebrating and recognising these two important days on Thursday 17 March.  We encourage our students and staff to wear orange on this day in recognition of these two important nationwide events and will be holding a whole school assembly in our school hall which will begin at 2pm
Harmony Day, 21 March, celebrates Australia’s cultural diversity. It’s about inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone.  It is a day for all Australians to embrace cultural diversity and to share what we have in common. The central message for Harmony Day is that ‘everyone belongs’, reinforcing the importance of inclusiveness to all Australians.  The theme for Harmony Day 2016 is our diversity is our strength.  Students will engage in a number of activities within their classrooms during the week where they will recognize the diverse learners within their classrooms and discuss how diversity makes them or their community stronger.
The National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence (Bullying No Way! ) is an annual day where we encourage all students to 'take a stand together' against bullying and violence in schools, the classroom and beyond.  Students will engage in a number of activities within their classrooms during the week and will engage in discussions around effective strategies they can use when they are being bullied or see others being bullied (including bystander behaviour).  Through a number of activities, the aim is to ensure that our students receive a powerful message that bullying and violence is never okay.
