Diversity Week


Tuesday 5th September Fairhills HS celebrated Disability awareness

Disability day at Fairhills HS is about recognizing and spreading awareness of the different mental and physical disabilities that are common in our community. Fairhills HS students hosted a number of games at lunchtime in the Gym. Students got to participate in a blind obstacle course, a group Hula Hoop contest and other exciting games. A huge thank you to all the student leaders who organised and ran the event.  

 

 

Fairhills HS hosted a slide the pool competition to raise funds for motor neuron disease. While it may have been a bit of a wet day for some, it was also very fun. Well done to Mr Donaldson and Ms Bishop for joining in and the students who participated.

Thursday 7th September was the celebration of Culture at Fairhills HS

We are lucky at Fairhills as we reside in a multicultural area. People in Knox come from over 130 different countries and just in the city of Knox, over 30% of people were born overseas. To celebrate culture, Fairhills HS hosted its annual international food festival. We had many students and staff come along to enjoy this yearly tradition. A big thanks to Ms Maghami and all the students who helped make all the yummy food.


 

 

Friday 8th September Fairhills HS celebrated gender and sexuality

There were lots of fun activities at lunchtime, including Tie Dye T – Shirts and Face painting.

A huge Fairhills HS banner was designed and decorated by our students.

We also had Kate Arnott present from Knox City Council making rainbow badges.

A big thanks to Ms Muratore and the student leaders for making this day fun.
