Stand Up Week 2020

Stand Up Week 2020

This week was Stand up Week, to raise awareness about homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying, with 73% of LGBTI+ students feeling unsafe in school.

We wanted to send out a clear message that our school is a safe place for All students.

To Mark the week, we had a non-uniform day on Friday and asked each year group to wear a different colour of the rainbow flag 🏳️‍🌈

The colours were:
Red for first years,
Orange for second years,
Yellow for third years,
Green for 4th years,
Blue for 5th years
Purple for 6th years

All students and teachers got involved, wearing one colour or all of them! 🌈 The result was our whole school was awash with colour, showing our support to all the members of the LGBTI+ community in our school.

Well done to Ms Whelan for organising the event!
