As part of their Humanities and Social Science lesson, the Year 3 students were invited to create Harmony Day badges to demonstrate their understanding of this important day. In class, they discussed the important terms of diversity, culture, belonging and peace and the different signs and symbols associated with these words. Here are some of the students’ beautiful quotes.

The circle in my badge means peace and the orange is the colour of Harmony and peace. – Humphrey Hager
Different flags represent different countries, and it does not matter where you are from we should always be treated the same – Annabel Bevis
I chose a plant in my badge to mean growing up together. – Jonathan Cunningham
The heart and Earth represent love in the world, the symbols stand for peace and orange is a Harmony Day colour. – Nidhi Atikam
