Pink Shirt Day


On Friday, 17th of May, South held a Pink Shirt Day where students and teachers dressed up in anything pink to support the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand. We were thrilled that we were able to raise $579 as a school towards this foundation.

At lunch, we held a Pink Photo Booth for anyone who wanted to take fun photos with their friends. It was wonderful to see everyone dressed in their pink creative outfits and the big support against bullying that was shown. Across the school, classes learned about how to be an upstander and how to help others when problems arise. The coloring competition was also a great success throughout all the classes as we had many entries. It was extremely hard to judge, but overall we decided on 3 winners who will be announced in assembly next week.
