Harmony Day in Maleny 2016 : Harmony Day is being celebrated all over Australia on Monday 21st March 2016.
Students from Maleny Primary School and the River School are learning their songs for the Harmony Day community performance.
With the help of Sweet Chilli choir members, Stephanie Arlidge and Lisa McDonald, they are practicing three songs; one from Kenya; another incorporating four prayers in different languages, and John Lennon’s song “Imagine” which will take your breath away.
The performances will begin at the Maleny Library at 10:45 am, then outside the Maleny Community Centre and conclude at The Maleny Neighbourhood Centre. We welcome the people of Maleny to come along and enjoy the performances.
The students from both schools will be involved in creating artwork for an exhibition in the town library.
An annual ‘free dress’ day will be held and gold coin contribution will be donated to BUDDIES, a local organisation that supports refugees and people seeking asylum.
The students from both schools will be creating their own special message to add to our Community Heart, showing diversity is our strength because together we can change the world.
