Family First Comment: No longer a boys’ school then……
“(The Principal) said Auckland Grammar did not have any transgender students attending school at the moment, but they had been thinking about what would happen in the future when it came to accepting students who would not be biologically boys but rather girls transitioning.”
Your gender is now just a figment of your imagination. All for a tick.

One of Auckland’s top boys’ schools has built a new unisex toilet block to cater for transgender students in the future.

It’s the latest step Auckland Grammar is taking towards gaining the Rainbow Tick – which specifically recognises and welcomes sexual and gender diversity.

Speaking to Larry Williams on Newstalk ZB, Headmaster Tim O’Connor said the concept came about when school officials realised young men want more privacy in school and public toilets.

“We responded to that, but also in the back of our mind has been diversity, and the reality, that at some point in the future we will have students who identify themselves as transgender or in the LGBT community.”
