The Coffs Coast Advocate

Coffs Coast wants harmony

EVERYONE belongs.

That's the message being spread this Harmony Day, March 21 - and Coffs Coast schools and businesses are shouting it loud.

Managed by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC), Harmony Day celebrates the cohesive and inclusive nature of our nation and promotes the benefits of cultural diversity.

In the days surrounding, business and schools are encouraged to join in the festivities with a range of events that promote tolerance and cultural awareness.

It's about community participation, inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone.

So far Woolgoolga Public School, Sandy Beach School and St Francis Xavier School have registered events, as have Southern Cross University, Centrelink Coffs Harbour and ABC Learning in Coffs Harbour.

There is no limit to the range of activities that can be held for Harmony Day and schools, community groups, local government and businesses are all encouraged to get involved and actively support this day of celebration.
