Anti Bullying: Pink Shirt Day – Friday 18 May, 2018

Well, we were definitely in the pink! It was great to see so many staff and students dressed in pink, to raise awareness of this year’s anti bullying campaign.

Green Bay High School actively works to ensure that we are a safe school for all. Everyone has the right to feel safe at school, this includes all aspects of safety: physical, emotional, mental and social.

Student Leaders promoted Pink Shirt Day today, as part of a world Anti Bullying campaign. Pink Shirt Day is about starting conversations and taking action to reduce bullying. Students and staff took part in a Kahootz quiz, and were treated to pink candy-floss, and pink home-made baking. There was live music and entertainment at lunchtime – all facilitated by student led groups such as Live for Tomorrow, Shine, and PSSP. 

Pink Shirt Day has been recognised in New Zealand since 2009, and the event grows stronger and larger every year.

What can students do if they are feeling unsafe? 

  • Talk to a trusted adult – Dean, Counsellor, Teacher, Parent.
  • See one of our Youth Cyber Zone Team who are trained to help students gain appropriate support in cyberspace.
