Racial Harmony Day School Celebration

Posted by Dawn at Wednesday, July 21, 2010
Racial Harmony Day is celebrated annually on the 21st of July. This event is to commemorate the racial riots which took place on 21 July 1964. On this day, all schools celebrate Singapore's success as a racially harmonious nation and society built on a rich diversity of culture and heritage which we must appreciate and treasure.

So I strongly believe in respecting all cultures, races and religions and wish I could pass that on to my children.

I am thankful that Caleb's classmates are of different races. He has Korean, Japanese, Eurasian, Chinese, Indian friends in his class.

Anyway, to encourage my son to join in the celebration which he has in school, I borrowed clothes from many of my friends's kids and finally, I decided on this Indian costume which suited him and more importantly, he loved it! He didnt like the Chinese ones though...oh well.


When Danielle saw him wearing the costume, she kicked up a fuss and wanted to wear it too. So here's a vest which my friend lent me as well.


Anyway, happy Racial Harmony Day! May we live harmoniously with one another and appreciate the peace and security we have in Singapore.
