Pink Shirt Day is on Friday 17 May 2019. This is a movement to stop bullying and spread Aroha and kindness!
What is Pink Shirt Day? Pink Shirt Day is an event that’s celebrated annually around the globe, Pink Shirt Day began in Canada in 2007 when two students, David Shepherd and Travis Price, took a stand against homophobic bullying after a new year 10 student was harassed and threatened for wearing pink. There is a gold coin donation for this day.
Glenfield College is participating in Pink Shirt Day as it links into our school’s values of how we’re resilient to bullying, aspirational to achieve 0% bullying and to have pride and respect as students.
The money raised will be going towards the Mental Health Foundation. https://events.mentalhealth.org.nz/donate
