Hobart City Council held its first
Harmony Day celebration in 2001. This has become an annual event with many of
the more recently arrived cultural groups participating in musical and dance
This year many schools attended the
event which was held in Elizabeth Street Mall. It was very exciting to listen to
two Rose Bay High students relate what Harmony Day means to them.
Nelly Iduteyiteka, formerly of
Burundi, arrived in Tasmania in 2006 with no English. Through the assistance of
the community, Nelly and her family have made Hobart their home. Nelly thinks
that life would be very boring if we all looked the same and spoke the same
Alex Arabzadeh arrived in Tasmania
only 15 months ago from Iran. His mother and her four sons love living in
Hobart because it is peaceful and people from all over the world live here in
The Rose Bay
High School Health Matters group have been organising a short film about
health related issues in the past few months. The project started early last
year, and on Friday the 27th and Wednesday the 31st of March this year, we
finally filmed the scenes to video.
We still need
to edit it and put it all together but we are making good progress.
We hope you enjoy the film
when we unveil it.
