CHARTHOUSE Primary School students wore orange to celebrate Harmony Day on Tuesday.

Orange was the chosen colour because the fruit is symbolic of how the world is segmented, yet forms a single whole.

Students made a hand collage in the shape of Australia to go on display.

They researched and enjoyed activities focussing on the local Noongar culture. Students also made a language tree to learn about local Noongar seasons, performed Dreamtime stories and cooked damper.
