Pink Shirt Day
This email is sent out on behalf of Raglan Area School and the Raglan Community Violence Protection and Awareness Group.
Pink Shirt Day is a national and international event which aims to reduce bullying by celebrating diversity and promoting the development of positive social relationships; to create an environment where all people feel safe, valued and respected.
Pink Shirt Day will be held at Raglan Area School and throughout the community, on May 17th. The theme for 2013 is “Where’s the Power?” A colouring competition for juniors and a logo/slogan competition (for all - adults and children) are being held. This competition closes on 10th May (please contact us if you would like to have entry forms).
On Friday 17th May school children in our community will march from Raglan Area School (all our local schools have been invited to participate) through and around the town.
We are seeking the support of everyone in our community to get behind this initiative. We want to deliver a very strong message to our community that we don't want violence in any form.
The way that people can get involved is:
1. Wear Pink on May 17th – pink shirts, pink socks, pink shoelaces, pink ribbons, pink hair, tie pink balloons or ribbons to your car aerial or letterbox (particularly if you live in Norrie Ave Stewart St, Bow St) .........anything to show your support!
2. Join the Pink Shirt Day March at 12pm on May 17th. The March starts at 12noon. The March leaves the school at midday, goes down Norrie Ave, down Stewart St, into Wainui Road and then into and around Bow St.
3. Add details of this to your own Facebook page. Help us get the whole community behind this event.
Come show your support and encourage our kids as they pass on the Anti Violence message. Tell your friends! Tell your neighbours! Lets make this a day to remember.
