Stand Up Awareness Week (6 - 10 November) is being celebrated all around Stratford this week and the theme is Being an Ally. The initiative is part of a nationwide campaign where post-primary schools, youth services, and youth reach programs unite to take a firm stance against homophobic, bi-phobic, and transphobic bullying.

Speaking about the activities programme co-ordinator Linda Finnegan said: “This year’s Stand Up Week is emphasising the role and impact each of us can have in supporting our friends, classmates, and community members.We have been engaging in a variety of activities and discussions to emphasise our dedication to fostering a safe, accepting, and compassionate space for all in our school. We want to ensure that every student knows they are valued and respected for who they are."
