TAFE SA students and staff celebrated Harmony Day on Wednesday, 21 March 2018, at shared lunches and with displays and activities in libraries across the state. 

A visit from Port Adelaide Football Club Multicultural Program Manager, and retired player, Alipate Carlile was a highlight for Foundation Skills students at Salisbury campus.

Alipate delivered a presentation to the Skills for Education and Employment (SEE) and Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) students about his personal story of fleeing Fiji during a political coup, and the challenges he and his family encountered whilst settling in country Victoria.

Alipate discussed the importance of belonging and how sport is a great example of how we can all be connected despite our diverse backgrounds. He shared his AFL experience.

He then ran a mini skills clinic inviting students to participate. AMEP student Marc Anthony Chitsulo was presented with a Port Power t-shirt for his impressive skills.
