Students at St Brendan’s Primary School celebrated diversity with a wide range of activities for Harmony Day on Thursday.
Students took part in activities ranging from boomerang painting to bush dancing and listened to Father Rob Galea’s stories and songs about growing up in Malta.
The students also helped create a multicultural banner to be displayed in the school hall, with each student putting their handprint on the banner to show it represented the entire student body.
Student backgrounds include Sudanese, Chinese, Malaysian and Congolese and they are taught to respect each other regardless of appearance or culture.
‘‘We’re all the same, it doesn’t matter where we come from,’’ school vice-captain Ethan Baxter, 11, said.

The day was conducted with help from parents, teachers and Academy of Sports Health and Education.
