Many stories - one Australia

The Harmony Day 2013 theme is Many Stories – One Australia, which continues the Harmony Day message. So let's go beyond the cover of the book and wander through the pages of each other's story, only then can we really learn and understand each other.

Australia is a land of diversity. We have come from more than 200 countries around the world to become a part of the story of this great country.

From the Dreamtime to Eureka to the Snowy River, from the outback to the city, in wartime and in peace we make up the pages of the bigger Australian story we share today. Our stories may be hard to tell and heartbreaking, but also inspirational and heart-warming.

So take a photo, film a video, write an article.

Follow the link to the Harmony Day site (above) for activities, games and lessons to try.

I thought these might be a start to thinking about "Australian Voices" for Term 1.
