Harmony Day 2019
Held every year on 21 March, Harmony Day is a day to celebrate Australian multiculturalism, based on the successful integration of migrants into our community.
Harmony Day is about inclusiveness, respect and belonging for all Australians, regardless of cultural or linguistic background, united by a set of core Australian values.
Since 1999, more than 70,000 Harmony Day events have been held in childcare centres, schools, community groups, churches, businesses and federal, state and local government agencies across Australia.
Harmony Day also coincides with the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
TRAPSA Co-founded by our union with the Queensland Teachers’ Union (QTU), Teachers for Refugees and People Seeking Asylum (TRAPSA) gives all IEUA-QNT members the opportunity to take an active role in addressing the global refugee and asylum seeker crisis.
TRAPSA provides members wishing to play their part in this global movement of welcome the opportunity to become more involved. To join TRAPSA, visit www.facebook.com/TRAPSAqld
We can play a vital role in supporting migrants, as well as refugees and people seeking asylum.
Members are encouraged to celebrate Harmony Day by holding an event or activity to further promote an inclusive culture in their schools.
