Once again St Joseph’s Park Avenue is holding their annual Harmony Day. It will be held in third term on Thursday 25th of July. Our school community would love to have your participation in the day. As we have a high number of Indigenous students the focus of our day is on Indigenous culture. Previous guest speakers/presenters have run various art activities, storytelling, traditional games etc. as a service you may already have something in place for youth suitable to primary aged children. We are asking for 16 guest speakers/presenters to run two 45 minutes sessions, each session with an audience of one class of approximately 27 students. These would start at 9:30 and be held one after the other. If possible presenters are encouraged to stay around for lunch and a special thank-you.

Harmony Day 2012.doc Flyer word.
The Harmony working Group would like to invite members from the Health professional who may like to join in our Harmony Day Celebration for 2012 under any community tree they would prefer.
As you are aware we planted trees 12 trees on Harmony Day 2010 and each tree had a plaque with a dedication from the that community, for various reasons the plaques that were to go in the ground in front of the trees didn’t get put in.
We hope to have them in the ground by the end of February and to hold a blessing of the trees by various spiritual leaders of the community and a smoking by the indigenous people, followed by a sausage sizzle.
This will be a finalisation of the community tree project and we hope you and others will choose to be a part of it.
The attachments are a general lettr to the community and a couple of pages from the booklet we put out celebrating that day, the plaque messages are in black under the photos.
It would be great to see some of the health and well being people in attendance.
