‘If it’s not gay, it’s not gay’

In a follow up to the previous blog How to unlearn homophobia we share a video from Rainbow Youth which addresses the power of language in a uniquely kiwi way. Check it out!

“We chose to address something small that contributes to much larger issues – homophobia, biphobia and transphobia.” Rainbow Youth have said on their Facebook page.

Fair Trade spreads across campus

We supprt Fair TradeGreat news! Café 101 and Reboot have joined the Fair Trade journey, meaning that anywhere on campus you choose to have your coffee or hot chocolate now, you’ll be helping to ensure workers in developing countries are receiving basic humanitarian services. Think – good health, clean water, decent wages and schooling for their children. All those things we just take for granted.

Make sure your party is a ‘good one’

170928 Good one logoMake sure you have a ‘good one’ and register your party on the Good One party register.

Why register your party with the Police you ask? Sometimes no matter how much planning you put in and bags of chips you buy, parties can go pear shaped. If this does happen it is much easier for you to get help from the community Police when you know who they are and they know you. And if it helps you get your bond back at the end of the year we reckon it’s worth it!

When you register a party the registration is sent to your friendly community Police. The Police might give you a call, offer advice and help you to plan and throw a ‘good one’. Find out more about how it works here>
