Over the rainbow

BROADFORD Secondary College was proud to join schools and workplaces across Australia in honour of “Wear It Purple” Day , by hosting the inaugural BSC Rainbow Day on Friday, August 25.
Led by the Student Representative Council (SRC) the day was filled with laughter and fun with the primary purpose of celebrating individuality and uniqueness.
“Wear It Purple” Day is a worldwide recognised day to celebrate, affirm and support sexuality and gender diverse young people, their families and communities.
The importance of talking about why people are wearing purple, the impact of homophobic bullying on everyone and how to combat it are integral in reaffirming the principles behind “Wear It Purple” Day.
The BSC students enjoyed a whole range of activities on Rainbow Day including face painting, a bake sale, music, dressing up and a casual clothes day.
“I loved the fact I could be anyone that I wanted to be and was welcomed by everyone,” Staff member Megan Taylor said.
“It was a colour filled day and a great chance to support everyone in the community,” added Tessa Sedawie.
The SRCwere commended for all their hard work in ensuring the day went ahead with all proceeds from the day to be donated to “Wear It Purple.”
