It is not the school's policy to promote any form of entertainment genre.
We acknowledge that in making reference to '13 Reasons Why' we could be seen to be helping publicise it on the basis that in the entertainment industry any publicity can be seen as good publicity.
However, given the challenging content and current media attention, it is important to note that;
- '13 Reasons Why' is NOT a text studied at this school
- it has a NZ Censor's rating of RP18
- it contains material that will challenge viewers
Support for boys and families, should issues arise from viewing the programme, is available through the following links:
