Residents are invited to celebrate Canterbury-Bankstown’s cultural diversity, by attending Harmony Day festivities in March.
Celebrations kick-off at the inaugural World Traditional Games Day for local high schools, at Belmore Sports Ground, on Wednesday 20 March.
Mayor Khal Asfour said the day would showcase the cohesive and inclusive nature of the local community, and promote the benefits of cultural diversity, respect and a sense of belonging.
"These events underline that our community thrives on its differences - the exchange of cultures is a continual source of innovation, vibrancy, and vitality," he said.
