STUDENTS representing 48 nationalities at St Andrews Grammar in Dianella made their mark on a large-sized world map as part of Harmony Day yesterday.
The festivities also included a multicultural lunch, dance performances and a whole-school celebration of the map at the amphitheatre.
Principal Craig D’cruz said students and parents saw how they were part of one big community on Harmony Day.
“The world map represents every facet of our school because we have children from every continent in the school,” he said.
“The important thing for me is that each nationality brings a ‘world view’ into the classroom.
“We don’t have a clash of cultures – we actually have an acceptance of cultures.
“The beauty of that is that every child has been learning how to speak Greek, they understand Greek dancing, Greek language and culture.”
Mr D’cruz said the school would celebrate Greek Independence Day today.
“We have other cultural experiences as well, we have the Ochi Day, Battle of Crete, St Andrews feast day and a variety of other days where we commemorate very important Greek traditions,” he said.
