Awareness days

Where possible as a school we try to support a variety of awareness days and weeks. From Gumboot Friday to Loud Shirt Day. Our tamariki love a good excuse to dress up and raise money for fantastic causes. 


Pink Shirt Day is about working together to stop bullying by celebrating diversity and promoting kindness and inclusiveness.

It’s about creating a community where all people feel safe, valued and respected, regardless of gender identity, sexual orientation, age, ability, religion or cultural background.

On Friday 19 May 2023, we ask Aotearoa to Kōrero Mai, Kōrero Atu, Mauri Tū, Mauri Ora – Speak Up, Stand Together, Stop Bullying!


Wig Wednesday is a fun day where ordinary Kiwis in schools, businesses and community groups show their support by wearing a wig, shaving their head or styling a funky hairdo, while raising money for Child Cancer Foundation.

gumboot friday

Gumboot Friday is a Bi-annual fun and awareness raising event where New Zealand comes together to raise money for free kids counselling, while wearing Gumboots! 

Since 2021, kiwis have donated $3.3 million to fund free kids counselling and at the time of printing, Gumboot Friday has funded 20,481 counselling sessions, helping 9,376 kiwi kids.
