EAST Butler Primary School combined its parent open night with a Harmony Day celebration on March 21.
Deputy principal Mike Wills said the celebrations opened with boys doing the haka.
“The crowd was so impressed by their performance that they were called for an encore,” he said.
“The Year 6 and 5 boys trained in their own time to be able to perform the haka in order to welcome the parents and the students to our Harmony Day celebrations.
“This was followed by the Chinese Kung Fu and Chinese Academy performing the lions dance.
“The lions blessed the school with lettuce for good fortune and mandarins representing gold for prosperity.
“The final entertainment piece was from African drummers who had parents, children and teachers participating in their drumming and dancing.”
Mr Wills said the entertainment gave the evening a “high energy start” before parents went to view their children’s work in the classrooms.
