Mr LIM (Clayton) — I rise to congratulate the Westall Secondary College on the success of its recent Harmony Day celebration. On 15 March I attended the harmony tree planting ceremony at the college. This was a followed by speeches and performances in front of the whole school assembly, which is made up of students from different ethnic backgrounds.

The theme was recognition of cultural diversity and the celebration of all races and cultures in this country. The students gave their own impressions of Harmony Day, with creative self-made videos, speeches in their mother tongue and singing and dancing in ethnic costumes. The sports hall was filled with laughter, applause and a good spirit.

The school principal, Mr David Tyson, and fellow teachers ought to be commended for their selfless devotion — —

The ACTING SPEAKER (Dr Sykes) — Order! The time for statements by members has expired.
