Rainbow Territory is a supporter of the Safe Schools Coalition.

Safe Schools provides teachers and the school community with the skills, language and courage to support young people and the diversity that already exists in their schools.

We support its presence in NT schools.

We are calling on the NT Education Minister Peter Chandler to support the Safe Schools programme in the NT, and to support its federal funding.

Rainbow Territory wants to highlight how challenging spaces within schools can be for students and staff that identify as LGBTQI or have LGBTQI family members and friends. We also wanted the educator ministers to grasp how important it is that Safe Schools programs provide teachers with the language and courage to support the gender and sexual diversity that already exists in Australian schools.
A big thanks to everyone who came down to Roma Bar this morning and got busy with textas, stickers and pens to write to NT and federal education ministers.
We encourage all people in the NT who support the Safe Schools Coalition to write to Peter Chandler and the others listed below expressing their support for Safe Schools.
