Events Colour your Day – Friday, March 22 Tomorrow, Friday, March 22, Long Bay College will be supporting the “Colour Your Day” initiative developed by Christchurch City Council’s 24-7 Youth Work. It’s a way for New Zealanders to demonstrate love and support for everyone that has been impacted by last Friday’s events. Our values at Long Bay College embody community, respect, care and creativity so we would like to invite all our students to wear bright coloured mufti, observe a minute of silence at 1:40pm and donate towards the Mayoral fund called, ‘Our People, Our City’. Note: We have been advised that the wearing of red is the least culturally appropriate colour from the perspective of the Muslim community. Where possible we would like to respect this. Our sincere condolences go out to all our friends, families and fellow New Zealanders. Kia Kaha Aotearoa.
