Bullying-Free New Zealand Week started on Monday.

Our theme this year is ‘Whakanuia Tōu Āhua Ake! Celebrating Being Us!’ The week provides a great opportunity for students to celebrate what makes them unique – such as talents, interests, appearance, disability, culture, beliefs, race, gender or sexuality – and encourage schools to build environments where everyone is welcome, safe and free from bullying.

Schools that encourage respect, value opinions, celebrate difference, and promote positive relationships make it difficult for bullying behaviour to thrive or be tolerated.

The week ends with the Mental Health Foundation’s Pink Shirt Day on Friday 17 May.

Already a record 1000 schools and 850 workplaces have signed up to take part.
