Pink Shirt Day

 

Students and staff at Sacred Heart College, Napier, celebrated Pink Shirt Day in spectacular fashion on Friday 17 May, to ‘Kōrero Mai, Kōrero Atu, Mauri Tū, Mauri Ora – Speak Up, Stand Together, Stop Bullying’. Pink Shirt Day is about working together to stop bullying by celebrating diversity, promoting positive social relationships and creating a community where all people feel safe, valued and respected. Celebrated annually around the globe, Pink Shirt Day began in Canada in 2007 when two students, took a stand against homophobic bullying after a new year 10 student was harassed and threatened for wearing pink. Pink Shirt Day has been celebrated in Aotearoa since 2009.
