IDAHOBIT Day at the David Scott School

In a school where two of our values are individuality and equality, our students and staff embraced the opportunity to celebrate IDAHOBIT day on Monday May 17th.

31 years ago – on May 17, 1990 – the World Health Organization removed homosexuality from the Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems. International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia & Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) celebrates LGBTQIA+ people globally, and raises awareness for the work still needed to combat discrimination. It is important to recognise some 30 years later, at least 75% of LGBTQI+ Youth experience some form of discrimination and at least 25% also experience depression.

Regardless of gender, sexuality identity or preference, it is important that the David Scott School comes together, not just today but every day to support one another and ensure nobody is made to feel bad for being who they are.

We celebrated with rainbow cupcakes, colourful clothes and a host of lunchtime activities. Thanks to all involved in making the school’s celebration a huge success.

I really appreciate being at this school, in fact, being a student here has changed my life. I love that I have been able to experience new things and that the lessons we are taught are relevant to my life outside of the school too.
