Students and teachers at Karratha Senior High School participated in a range of activities to mark last month’s Harmony Day celebrations.

Harmony Day is held annually on March 21 and aims to encourage positive values, promote participation, and provide students with fun ways to learn.

Students also had the chance to brush-up on their language skills, practising how to say “hello” in different languages.

Clontarf students and Year 7 English students enjoyed a writing activity in which they were asked to report about their cultural heritage and why it made them proud.
