This petition is for the allowance of beards at Tauranga Boys' School. Beards play a significant role in our culture, having us to shave them makes us feel unwelcome on school grounds. We are forced to shave our beards, blandly cause "we look untidy". This is a pure injustice, to our culture (Punjabi). It is by being natural and our beard is a symbol of pride to our culture and our community. We also feel that not just Punjabis, but everyone and their beliefs should be embraced with equal respect as well. Just like how us as a community have learnt and respected the kiwi culture of nz, we would like the same respect back towards our religions and cultures.
