Happy Harmony day to all. Today we mark Australia’s 20th Anniversary of Harmony Day, which celebrates our country’s cultural diversity. This harmony day, however, we hope to spread a strong message of inclusiveness and respect as we remain shaken by the recent, utterly devastating, terrorist attack in Christchurch.

The ASMS expresses our deepest sympathies for those affected by the massacre. We stand in solidarity with the Muslim community and wish to convey that everyone is welcome here. As a cornerstone of our community and educator of the future leaders it is important that we aim to bring our community together as one which values equality, respect and inclusiveness.
