Rosewood State High School students came together for a special Harmony Day celebration on Wednesday 20 March.

Student Representative Council members joined Rosewood Chaplains, Rosewood Lions Club, Rosewood Community Centre and even local police to put on a feast of food and activities for the school.

SRC president Jess Armstrong was excited to see a term’s work of planning come to fruition.

“The theme for Harmony Day is ‘everyone belongs’ and I think that’s really important at our school,” she said.

“This is an event that the whole school community can come together over and everyone’s interacting in a nice, positive environment.”

Students were treated to fresh fruit, slushies, Aussie classics like lamingtons, Vegemite toast and fairy bread, and Italian food items like pesto pasta and garlic bread.

“We’ve got Head Space here, they’re making stress balls with the West Moreton Health team, which are the school nurses,” Bella said.

“We have the year 11 and 12 volunteering Cert students helping out.”

SRC event manager Bella Parker said organising the event was very fulfilling.

“I like bringing people together, it’s one of my passions,” she said.

“Everyone is the same inside.”
