Kōrero Mai, Kōrero Atu, Mauri Tū, Mauri Ora – Speak up, Stand Together, Stop Bullying!
Maunu School joined the movement on Pink Shirt Day, Friday 20 May, and encouraged our staff and students to Kōrero Mai, Kōrero Atu, Mauri Tū, Mauri Ora – Speak up, Stand Together, Stop Bullying! Pink Shirt Day works to reduce bullying by celebrating diversity in all its forms and supporting schools, workplaces and communities to be safe, supportive, welcoming and inclusive for everyone.
On Friday 20th May staff & students wore pink to show their support for Pink Shirt Day. We had a special assembly led by Mrs. Turton and the Peer Mediators.
At Maunu School we talk about the importance of being an UPSTANDER. ‘An Upstander is defined as a person who uses words and actions that can help someone who is being bullied.’ Pink Shirt Day is a powerful way to spread aroha and kindness and stand up to and against bullying behaviours.
Fundraising for Mental Health Foundation
Whanau who wanted to donate to the Mental Health Foundation sent a gold coin on the day.
Our tamariki enjoyed placing their coins on the playground to create a gold & pink T-Shirt. We raised $221 through gold coin donations.
