Glendal Harmony Day

Harmony Day at Glendal Primary School

Our diversity makes Australia a great place to live. Harmony Day is a celebration of our cultural diversity – a day of cultural respect for everyone who calls Australia home. Harmony Day is held every year on 21 March. At Glendal, we will also celebrate on 21 March by dressing in cultural dress or the colour orange which signifies social communication and meaningful conversations. We will hold a special assembly outside the Mi Cafe between 9-9.30 and parade our cultural dress or orange. We also encourage students to bring food from their own culture for lunch and sit outside for a picnic. Please note that students cannot share their food.

Congratulations iBots robotics Team

iBots Robotics, First lego League, guinea pig project

The Glendal iBots have been invited to represent Australia at the F.I.R.S.T Lego League World Robotics Championship in Houston, Texas in April 2017.  They were awarded the Innovative Solution Award at the Australian National Championships in December 2016.  The team is now working hard to improve their project 'robotic guinea pig' and their 'mission board'. This is a great honour for the team and for our school.

 

Our team is hoping to raise funds to resource the Robotics competition and program to enable more students in the future to participate in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and maths). We are seeking sponsorship to achieve this goal.

 

Please see the attached Sponsorship Prospectus for more information. 

 

*NEW: Make a bid on the limited edition Mitchell Johnson Cricket Memorabilia “Ashes to Ashes”.  Auction closes 5PM, 29 March 2017.
