19-02-2012 21:33 On Friday, 17 February I launched the new and interactive Harmony Day educational resources at Barnier Public School with Federal Member for Greenway, Michelle Rowland. The resources teach children about diversity, harmony and belonging. The lucky group of students were among the first in Australia to try out the new interactive whiteboard and online resources. Video Transcription Kate: I'm at Barnier Primary School with Michelle Rowland the Member for Greenway, and we've just launched this wonderful resource for schools for Harmony Day 2012, its called "Multicultural match-it". And the kids here have been having a wonderful time using their memories to play this great game. What do you think Michelle? Michelle: I think these are some of the smartest young people we've had in part of our school tours here. They're learning a lot about different costumes from around the world and different customs and I think everyone has done a fantastic job doing the Multicultural Match-it here today. We've had a really great time. Kate: So it's a game that can be played on both computers like this, or on the interactive whiteboards. The idea is you match up a piece of clothing from a different culture, but you've got to use your memory to find out where the other piece of clothing is. The children here have a wonderful time using their memories, using their brains and learning something about our wonderfully diverse culture here in Australia.
