Harmony Week wrap-up

Harmony Week was celebrated across all campuses at La Trobe last week. Here’s a quick wrap-up of the celebration highlights on campus.

The festivities began at Bendigo with club stalls, live performances and lots of tasty treats! The Islamic Society and The South Asian Student Society (SASSY) were offering some traditional (and very tasty!) snacks from their market stalls and live cultural performances.
