FOOD, music, dance and story-telling formed part of Wanneroo Secondary College’s Harmony Week celebrations.

The week started with Noongar elder Janet Hayden and Cowan MHR Anne Aly sharing stories about their upbringings and challenges faced, followed by students’ own accounts of growing up in another country.

Later in the week, students enjoyed musical performances by indigenous, African and Maori artists, as well as tasting food from around the world and watching a variety of traditional dances from other countries.

Aboriginal and Islander education officer Morgan Dunk co-ordinated this year’s event.

“We wanted to break up and study the elements of culture promoting harmony through education and acceptance,” he said.
