Cultural diversity thrill

Community groups and schools from across the Grampians Pyrenees held activities to celebrate Cultural Diversity Week thanks to one-off funding from the region’s Skilled Migration Program. Among those to receive $500 grants were Ararat Neighbourhood House, which used the funds to host a Taste of Harmony event where food from other cultures was prepared and shared with members of the community. Neighbourhood House manager Caroline Ballantyne, right, and Rabbia Ahmed are pictured tasting some of the products produced during the festivities. Others to benefit from grants included Stawell-based social networking group LinkUp, Ararat’s Marian College, Ararat North Primary School, Beaufort Secondary College, Great Western Primary School and St Patrick’s Primary School. Regional Skilled Migration coordinator Celia Tucker said she was thrilled with the community’s response to Cultural Diversity Week.
