The whole of Wainui School was in pink, supporting the anti-bullying message of Pink Shirt Day on Friday, May 17.
Pink tee shirts for the entire school were donated by Karlene Jonkers, a trustee of the Sophie Elliott Foundation who works with Police in facilitating the Loves Me Not programme in colleges.
In the week leading up to Pink Shirt Day, each child chose an anti-bullying message to decorate their tee shirt with.
Teachers and students discussed concepts such as, what bullying is, identifying their support network, how to be brave for others and showing kindness.
There was a Pink Parade and gold coin donations to raise funds for the Mental Health Foundation.
