Harmony Day
On Thursday 21st March the Beaconsfield State School community celebrated Harmony Day with a variety of activities held throughout the day. The weekly assembly commenced with a focus of the special day, as Jacinta Wimmer (Curriculum Coordinator) revised with the audience the focus of Harmony Day with the special guest presenters (who would be running cultural workshops with the students) also introduced. Class representatives then presented to the crowd their class posters, which were a summary of what Harmony Day means to them. The themes of “Our Stories and Everybody Belongs” were common throughout the great artistic work that was displayed with the class posters. The special guest presenters had a difficult time judging a winner with so many high quality posters submitted. In the end though, the Yr 2 Platypus class  were awarded first place with the Prep Ibis class judged second. Both of these posters as well as those of Yr 5 Clark and Yr 4/5 Griffiths classes are on display in the office foyer for those interested in checking out our great student work! The students had a great time participating in the cultural workshops held in the library throughout the day, learning about a wide variety of cultures that make up our Beaconsfield School community. The students were thoroughly engaged throughout the workshops which was reflected by their exemplary behaviour during the day. A big thankyou to Mrs Wimmer and our CEC Aunty Maud for their hard work and efforts in planning and coordinating a fantastic learning experience and celebration of Harmony Day for our students.
