National Schools Pride Week
National Schools Pride Week is a campaign based in schools, with a range of activities that schools, QSAs or rainbow diversity groups, students and staff can get involved with. The campaign builds on the former Day of Silence campaign by shifting the primary focus to a celebratory week of events and activities that support rainbow young people to have a sense of belonging in their schools and communities. Schools Pride Week has been created by InsideOUT, a national organisation that works with youth, whānau, schools and communities to make Aotearoa a safer place for all rainbow young people to live and be in.
We hope that by celebrating and affirming rainbow identities through our pride campaign we can help reduce the experiences of bullying and distress for our rainbow rangatahi.
Schools Pride Week aims to:
- Celebrate rainbow staff and students in our school communities, increasing a sense of belonging
- Support schools to facilitate activities and pride celebrations in their school, through the sharing of resources and information
- Give schools opportunities to incorporate rainbow issues into NCEA standards and subjects, and normalise rainbow identities across the curriculum.

We’re excited to launch InsideOUT’s first annual National Schools Pride Week campaign, with a range of activities that schools, rainbow diversity groups, students and staff can get involved with in their school!
We hope that by creating opportunities to celebrate and affirm rainbow identities through this campaign we can help reduce the experiences of bullying and distress many of our rainbow rangatahi face, and give these young people an increased sense of belonging in their school communities.
