ONE student took dressing up to the next level when he made an orange juice popper costume for Harmony Day at Bald Hills State School recently.

Students wore orange and twisted their hair up in interesting creations as they celebrated multiculturalism and their new official anti-bullying colour.

School chaplain Kylie Conomos said they had a fantastic day which ended in a Friday night disco to raise money for Chaplaincy.

"Harmony Day celebrates our multicultural community and the right for everyone to feel safe and happy at school,” she said.

Harmony Day across the country will be officially celebrated on March 21 at many schools, organisations, businesses and government agencies in north Brisbane.

The message for the event is 'everyone belongs' and since 1999 more than 70,000 places have encouraged people to respect cultural and religious diversity and foster sense of belonging.
