Friday 16 August was the International Day of Silence and over 90 schools in Aotearoa participated. The Roskill way is respect for all, no matter what our nationality, our culture, our religion, our gender or sexual identity, we treat each other with dignity and respect. We are all one. The Day of Silence was an opportunity to stand up against homophobic, transphobic and biphobic harassment using silence as a weapon. It was an opportunity to support the rainbow community and take a stand for social justice. We are proud of our student leaders using silence as a tool to take a stand for social justice and standing up against homophobia. Manaakitanga … respect and dignity for all.
