The school is participating in the Mental Health Foundations Pink Shirt Day promotion. 

The event is about working together to stop bullying by celebrating diversity and promoting positive social relationships.

Bullying is a significant problem for New Zealand’s young people and can have serious and ongoing impacts on mental health and wellbeing. Some groups, such as LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex) young people, experience much higher rates of bullying.

By getting involved, we can help make our school a place where all young people feel safe, valued and respected regardless of age, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability or cultural background.  

The cafe has embraced the cause, with a pink theme with its food offerings for the whole week.

Students are encouraged to wear something Pink or the official promotional T-Shirt on the day (Friday 26 May) and bring a gold coin donation.

Watch a Pink Shirt Day video to hear from just a few of the many champions who were involved last year, and see what they did and why.
