Online Event

Pink Shirt Day is on Friday 17th May 2024.

Pink Shirt Day is about working together to stop bullying by celebrating diversity, and promoting kindness and inclusiveness.

The kaupapa began in Canada in 2007 when two students took a stand against homophobic bullying after a new Year 10 student was harassed and threatened for wearing pink. These students bought dozens of pink shirts and distributed them to their classmates to wear the next day. The word got out online and hundreds of students showed up in pink, some from head-to-toe, to stand together against bullying. It has been celebrated in Aotearoa since 2009.

Our kaimahi have purchased Pink Shirts from Cotton On where 100% of net proceeds from the sale of the t-shirts will support the Pink Shirt Day kaupapa.

Keep an eye out on our Ngā Mata Wai Ora Facebook page for some amazing Pink Shirt Day competitions and prizes to be won to get our tamariki and rangatahi involved in Pink Shirt Day.
