The Student Interact Representative Council (SIRC) ran a very successful Harmony Day once again this year at the end of Term 1. Students spent the weeks leading up to this event planning and preparing everything needed to run a range of activities at lunchtime. The focus of Harmony Day is to celebrate multiculturalism in our community and create an environment that is inclusive for all. Students were asked to come dressed in cultural clothing and had the option to participate in a range of organised activities during lunchtime. We thank our local Lilydale Rotary members for their involvement on the day and for also providing our ‘best dressed’ winners with movie vouchers. The total amount raised on the day was $761.25 – our best ever effort so thank you to everyone who got involved. A donation will be made to the Gippsland Multicultural Services which is an organisation that supports migrants and refugees in the Gippsland area.
A big congratulations to our Student Leadership Team for coming together as a team, using great communication skills and ultimately running a really successful day. Stay tuned for more things from the SIRC this term!
