Healthy Relationships

Mufti Day Fundraiser
Green Bay High School has always placed a high value on healthy relationships, both in and out of the classroom. Supporting students’ well-being is a really important part of what we do and there is a wide range of opportunities to make our school a great place to be and a supportive environment to be in, when our students face challenges in life.

On Thursday, the SHINE group organised an Orange themed Mufti Day, helping to raise awareness of domestic violence in homes. Students were encouraged to dress in Orange and a gold coin donation was collected to raise funds for KIDshine to help children who have experienced family violence.

A SHINE festival held at lunchtime, in conjunction with a Sausage Sizzle provided by the student PB4L team, provided a platform for all student groups in the school to share how they support positive relationships, allowing students to explore what the school has to offer while encouraging students to sign up.

Senior Constable Carl Musto (our local community constable) was on site helping to raise awareness of the support that is available for those who are impacted by unhealthy relationships.Our specially trained student SHINE Beacons are also able to provide ongoing support.

The New Zealand to Light It Orange week (3 – 9 March 2019) is a nationwide annual event, helping to raise awareness of family violence while also raising much needed funds to help victims of family violence get safe and stay safe.

Need help? The free-to-call national Helpline (0508-744-633) is answered 7 days a week, 9am to 11pm.
