Schools OutSCHOOLS OUT

 

Here you can find out what’s happening in School’s Out.

School’s Out is a queer* support group for teens based in Wellington, Kapiti and The Hutt. We get together once a week after school for discussions, guest speakers, fun and games, social stuff, movie days and free food!

As well as our regular weekly meetings during term, we also have bonus fun activities in the holidays.

A bunch of dedicated trained queer facilitators help run the group. School’s Out is here for you. We’re willing to discuss anything you want to discuss and help you with anything you need support or clarification on. We’re completely discreet and confidential. We won’t tell anyone you came along and we won’t share your secrets with anyone else.

School’s Out is about young people like yourself supporting each other and having a good time.

So whether you’re still in the closet or if everyone knows – whether you're sure of your identity or you're still deciding – come along! We're a really welcoming group. If you're a straight person who wants to come along to support your queer friends, we're happy to have you too. It’s heaps of fun and you’ll make lots of wonderful new friends.

Testimonial:

I was once a 17 year old who felt that I had to solve all my problems by myself. Then about half a year ago I showed up to School’s Out. I didn’t know what to expect. When I was there, not only did I find a group of people that I could relate to and find support in, but I also discovered a group of friends so unique that I had to come back. School’s Out isn't just a place I go to for help – it's a place I go to for friendship. When there, I can be myself. I don't have to hide anything and I don't feel judged in a negative way. That's why I go to School’s Out.” Keith
