As part of Harmony Day, the school had Bollywood dancing as well as several foods prepared from many different cultures.

Harmony Day is a day that Australians celebrate every March.

The school was visited by Western Australia’s Commissioner for Children and Young People Colin Pettit who spent several hours at the school sharing lunch and watching the festivities.

“This was my first visit to Piara Waters Primary School and I was pleased to receive such a warm welcome from the students,” Mr Pettit said.

“It was a pleasure to celebrate Harmony Day with students and acknowledge the positive contributions people from culturally diverse backgrounds make in our community.”
