Stand Up Awareness Week in Ard Scoil na nDéise

Well done to everyone who helped to organise Stand Up Awareness Week last week!
Stand Up Awareness Week in Ard Scoil na nDéise

We celebrated Stand Up Awareness Week in Ard Scoil na nDéise from Monday, 15th November to Friday, 20th November. Stand Up Awareness Week is a time for the school communities of second-level schools, youth services, and Youthreach Centres in Ireland to join together and take a stand against homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying. This week is an opportunity for schools to look at how they can be safe and supportive places for LGBTI+ students. It is unacceptable that one in five young LGBTI+ people face bullying, and that 73% of young LGBTI+ students feel unsafe at school. In Ard Scoil na nDéise, we are working hard to educate and train the entire school community around supporting LGBTI+ young people. During the week we had daily questions to provoke thought and discussion around LGBTI+ issues. We also had poster competitions, quizzes within class groups, and a Rainbow Day on Friday where each group, including the teachers, came to school dressed in a specific colour of the rainbow to represent the rainbow flag. Thank you to Ms. Twomey and her hardworking committee for making the week such a success.
