This event takes place just over a week after SACA’s Friendship Cup was held for a third consecutive year, which included teams from Sri Lanka, Bhutan, India, Pakistan, Nepal, Afghanistan, the Australian Army and SAPOL.
The key message of Harmony Day is that ‘everyone belongs’, with the day aiming to engage all people to participate in their community, respect cultural and religious diversity and foster a sense of belonging.
A celebration of Australia’s diversity, Harmony Day is a day of respect and recognition for all those who call Australia home.
Over 30 teams will participate in the carnival tomorrow, primarily from schools with a high multicultural population.
Both primary schools and high schools will be involved in the event, with the main demographic being students whose parents were born overseas, or students who were born overseas themselves.
To further convey the ‘everyone belongs’ message, schools who submit a multicultural team are also invited to submit more teams into the competition that do not necessarily meet the multicultural criteria.
The South Australian Cricket Association is hosting this event as a celebration and demonstration of the inclusion that comes with being involved in team sport, with the ultimate vision for cricket to be South Australia’s favourite sport and a sport for all South Australians.
