Sea of Pink at UHC

UHC Admin —

Pink Shirt Day, and the message of anti bullying was well supported in the first week this term.

The purpose of Pink Shirt day is to demonstrate that  bullying is not tolerated and that we all support each other.  

This message aligns well with the UHC value of manaakitanga.  The day started with the Pride flag flying high and students and staff showing up wearing lots ofpink. 

Students were encouraged to bake and decorate something pink, and those goods were sold at the bake sale during lunch time and morning tea. 

There was also candy floss being made on site, food trucks, a three-legged obstacle race, a Fashion in the Field competition, and spot prizes on the day. Congratulations to our winners on the day:

  • Lethabo Nkoana – Best dressed
  • Kaley Donaghue – Best dressed runner up
  • Tori Illes-Hall – Best decorated baking
  • Leo Xue and Neeraj Patel – First in the three-legged obstacle race.
