Today marks the first day of Stand-Up week in this school. Stand-Up or Stand-Up Awareness Week is a nationwide anti-bullying campaign in support of LGBTQ+ students in the school. This year for Stand Up Awareness Week, we are focusing on the theme of allyship.
Everyone has a role to play in Stand Up Awareness Week, not just LGBTQ+ young people. We want to celebrate the allies who are an invaluable part of creating spaces where LGBTQ+ people are safe and supported to be themselves.
Throughout the week, there’ll be various different things taking place such as quizzes, surveys, classes on allyship, poster competition and the rainbow colours day this Friday.
We kicked off the day today with our flag-raising. Student Council members took part in the symbolic raising of the pride flag to show our school’s support and openness for all.
