CELEBRATING STIRLING’S CULTURAL DIVERSITY

CELEBRATING STIRLING’S CULTURAL DIVERSITY
Harmony Day celebrated on March 21 gives the Stirling community the opportunity to come together, celebrate Australia’s cultural diversity and recognise local groups and individuals. Harmony Day promotes a sense of belonging for everyone and I’m pleased to see so many schools and local community groups celebrating again with some great events this year. In 2016 we are encouraged to celebrate and talk about the benefits of our cultural diversity – how it brings us together, contributes to our economy and helps to create innovation in our ever evolving multicultural society. My electorate of Stirling is the most ethnically diverse in Western Australia, containing large Greek, Chinese, Italian, Croatian, Macedonian, Serbian and Indian communities. I encourage residents to head along to the City of Stirling’s free community event on Friday 18 March at Herb Graham Recreation Centre in Mirrabooka from 10am to 2pm to celebrate what it means to live in a culturally diverse society.
