Sa4i Pledge

Be a Defender not a Bystander (3)

“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.” –Helen Keller

Our Pledge 4 Inclusion

We believe that:

  1. every student, no matter their colour, race, gender, religion, cultural background or disability, has the human right to feel welcome, safe and included in our regular schools and regular classrooms;
  2. supporting other students to learn and participate in our regular schools, classrooms and school activities is a privilege and duty of every student;
  3. violence, bullying and harassment of a student by anyone (other students, parents, teachers, teaching assistants, even principals) is abuse and a breach of their human rights; and
  4. doing nothing about the abuse or exclusion of another student is not an option – because walking by or turning our back allows that abuse or exclusion to continue.

We will:

  1. support our fellow students to feel welcome, safe and included; and
  2. never walk by or turn our backs to the abuse or exclusion of our fellow students.

Because when we lift each other up, we all get stronger.

We are Human Right Defenders.
