Term 2, Week 3
This week in assembly we celebrated Pink Shirt Day. Celebrated annually around the world, Pink Shirt Day began in Canada in 2007, when two students took a stand against bullying, mobilising their whole school, after a peer was bullied for wearing a pink shirt. We have celebrated Pink Shirt Day in New Zealand since 2009. Staff celebrated this day by wearing pink to school today.
Deacon Brill received his Interschool Swimming participation certificate.
The St Columbus Cub and Scout group came up at assembly. They told us some exciting things they do as a Cub/Scout troop, which include camping, hiking and earning badges. They are fundraising and have organised a night at the movies, showing Finding Dory. Information on this is available at the school office.
These cool Aberdeen Students received Cool Clan Kid certificates at assembly this week. They have been recognised for their awesome attitudes in our playgrounds at lunch time.
