We would like to wish you all a very happy Harmony Day!

For those new to Australia, Harmony Day is celebrated annually on 21 March. It is a day for all Australians to celebrate our rich cultural diversity. The theme for this year is Celebrating 15 years of participation.
Harmony Day has a continuing message- Everyone Belongs – which conveys that all Australians are welcome to our country, despite their background. It is a time to reflect upon Australia’s history and journey, recognising the traditional owners of this land. Harmony Day is also about community participation, inclusiveness and respect.

Join in the Harmony Day celebrations at the University of Canberra on 18th March, 2015 at 11.00 am for the official welcome followed by cultural performances.
We hope you have a pleasant and harmonious Harmony Day :)
