Why Pride? Reflecting on Pride Month 2023

Now that Pride Month 2023 has come to an end, it’s a good time to reflect on why it’s important for us to show support.

As a school community, promoting the values of Pride is more than just a month long undertaking. These are the behaviours we encourage students to show throughout the year with an emphasis on tolerance, acceptance and celebrating diversity.

While we know there is always progress to be made, using national events is just one way of raising awareness; supporting students to be themselves and providing them with a safe space to talk and share their experiences.

Thank you to all students who took part in the activities to mark Pride Month, especially our first ever Colour Run. Hopefully the paint has all come out by now!

A special shout out to students within our HARLY group who put a lot of work into these activities and continue to make a valuable contribution to student life through fundraising, assemblies and more. They meet weekly (on Tuesday lunchtimes) and are always ready to welcome new members #everyonewelcome #fridayfocus
