Students come to PNE from a broad range of backgrounds and cultures. In our school, there are currently students and staff who speak different 19 languages from across the globe and Aboriginal and Torres Strait students. With such a rich and diverse community, Harmony Week at PNE is a true celebration of everything that we are and an important part of our calendar.
Over the week, we explore our identity through activities such as:
- Live performances
- Music and dance workshops
- Parents and members of our community visiting our school to share stories in languages other than English
- Whole school parade in cultural clothing
- Sharing food from home
While we always celebrate the great big mixing pot that is our school, it is lovely to have a week dedicated to our multiculturalism.
