Stand Up Week 2021

Stand Up Week 2021

'Choose words that heal, not hurt' Stand Up Awareness Week will take place from November 15-19th, 2021

Stand Up Awareness Week is a time for second-level schools, youth services, and Youthreach in Ireland to take a stand against homophobic bullying. The week is an opportunity for us to take steps to ensure that our school community is a safe and supportive for LGBTI+ young people.  

Some school-based events to mark Stand Up Week in our school include:

Creative Arts Competition


Included above is a copy of a poem written very recently by a student member of our Belvedere Pride Society. It highlights the struggles of the LGBT+ community but also the importance of safe and accepting spaces. As part of our Catholic ethos of promoting community, acceptance, justice and compassion, we continue to collectively work towards fostering a culture and a school space where everyone feels welcome, respected and safe. As part of the week, we will be running a Creative Arts competition for students on the issue. The poster is below
