THE region took on a distinct orange hue on Tuesday, as a number of schools and community groups marked Harmony Day.
Harmony Day is a celebration of cultural diversity, something our region knows all about.
In Tamworth, schools including Hillvue Public School and Oxley Vale Public School held special assemblies and activity days, to promote inclusiveness.
Harmony Day is held every year on March 21.
The day coincides with the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination; with the main message being “everyone belongs”.
It aims to foster a sense of participation in the community and comes on the back of new statistics that show an increase of language diversity in our region’s schools.
