  • Pink Shirt Day

    19th May 2017

    Pink Shirt Day Friday 26 May 2017.
    Bullying-free NZ Week is 22-26 May. This year’s theme is ‘New Zealand students with solutions – working together to end bullying’ The week aims to acknowledge the importance of listening to students’ voices and experiences, and the need for everyone – boards of trustees, school staff, students, whānau and communities – to provide safe, positive learning environments for children and young people.

    At the end of this week we will be celebrating with a MUFTI DAY for Pink Shirt Day. Our community is working together to stop bullying by celebrating diversity and promoting positive social relationships. By getting involved again this year, we can continue to make our school a place where young people feel safe, valued and respected regardless of age, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability or cultural background.  Students are asked to bring a gold coin to contribute to a donation to the Mental Health foundation and on-going anti-bullying initiatives. This will be collected in tutor time on the day. Students are asked to wear at least one item of pink clothing. Today in assembly our Year 13 leaders will be promoted the day and encouraged students to show their support.
