Celebrating Harmony Week 2010
Multicultural dancing, international cuisine and an array of colourful entertainment filled ECU’s campuses during Harmony Week, 15-21 March.
Harmony Week provides the ideal opportunity for students and staff to recognise and respect different cultures and unite as one.
Cultural diversity is one of ECU’s most valuable assets, enriching our learning community and bringing with it a variety of cultural and social benefits.
To celebrate Harmony Week in 2010, ECU and the Student Guild hosted Harmony Week fairs at each of the University’s campuses. The fairs gave students and staff the chance to experience refreshments and entertainment from a variety of cultures, as well as meet representatives from Kurongkurl Katijin, the International Students Council and students from ECU’s Student Exchange Program.
Students and staff attended Cross Cultural Awareness workshops which featured guest speakers from various cultural backgrounds. The workshop offered the ideal setting to improve understanding and communication skills when interacting with students and staff from different cultural backgrounds.
Staff also enjoyed multicultural delicacies by arranging their own ‘A Taste of Harmony’ morning or afternoon tea events during Harmony Week.
