Special day brings harmony

LAUGHTER and smiles were not in short supply on Harmony Day.

The Coffs Harbour Education Campus celebrated yesterday with henna tattoos, pancakes, origami and a photography exhibition.

The photography exhibition of local Burmese families was organised by Ayewin Swe. Digital cameras were given to local children of Burmese families to document their daily lives.

“We wanted to get the kids involved in Harmony Day,” Miss Swe said.

The display had a steady stream of viewers. The henna tattoos were also popular with many students lining up for art on hands, arms, legs and feet.

Rachel Ashbrook from CHEC TAFE said the celebration combined the Senior College, Southern Cross University and the TAFE.

“As well as harmony on a wider basis, today shows harmony on the campus,” Ms Ashbrook said. ‘Express Yourself’ was the theme for Harmony Day 2010 with CHEC encouraging students and staff to wear orange to mark the day.
