Rainbow Taskforce for Safe Schools

 

The New Zealand Post Primary Teachers' Association (PPTA) Rainbow Taskforce for Safe Schools (formerly Safe Schools Taskforce) has been operating for about 14 years. Its job is to help make secondary schools safe and welcoming places for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex students, family/whanau members and teachers.  This includes providing resources for schools to use in their work to combat homophobia and transphobia.

PPTA is a member of the SS4Q (Safety in Schools for Queers) organisation.  SS4Q is made up of representatives from organisations such as the NZ AIDs Foundation, the Human Rights Commission, Family Planning, and also interested individuals. SS4Q lobbies for change in government policies to ensure that schools are safe places for queer students, teachers and family/whanau.
