Stand Up Awareness Week is taking place November 12th-16th.
As part of Stand Up Week, the Department of Education invites all second-level schools in Ireland to take a stand against homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying. Stand Up week is an opportunity for schools, like ours to look at how we can make them safe and supportive places for LGBTI+ students.
It is unacceptable that one in five young LGBTI+ people face bullying, and that 70% of young LGBTI+ students feel unsafe at school. Supported by BeLonG To, we in Coláiste are working hard to educate and train the entire school community around supporting LGBTI+ young people.
