No, my school doesn't do it, but a group of us celebrated TWLOHA by going to a Skillet/Tobymac concert in the cities. (Minnesota) It was a great concert and we all wrote love on our arms. <3

Nope, my school would never do something like that.
I wish they would though.
That'd be really cool and inspiring I'm sure (:
We DO have a reduce under-age drinking week though. (:

No and we aren;t really allowed to support it either, because we aren;t allowed to draw on ourselves at all and we have a uniform so we can't wear the shirts etc.

TWLOHA isn't so big in the UK, the only people in the UK that I know have heard of it are on here so no, we don't do anything.

I don't go to school anymore, but my old school would never even think of doing anything for TWLOHA.

at my school it was a group of students that planned and did it all to rise awareness, and TWLOHA is To Write Love On Her(His) Arm

I've only heard of it since I joined TH.

We never did it at my high-school nor at university. At university they had (don't see them as much) posters for things such as Kids Help Phone and be all happy to others, see when others are sad or suicidal. Amazingly, the place I used to see them and sometimes still do is in the washrooms as they have some posters there for campus events, as well as near the medical/first aid center. I'm sure there are some in the student center building although I haven't looked carefully at the bulletin boards they have in there to see if it is there. All other buildings (possibly including student center) don't have it anywhere, except the locations mentioned.

There are around 100 or so clubs so chances are there is a club for something like that, I haven't gone to one like that though nor seen it during club weeks.

In NZ it is not big at all, and in fact I dont think anyone at my school even knows about it let alone celebrate it! It is rather ashame but many people around me don't really understand those things, as to be honest...we aren't a big country and 'its' not really done as much...

nope, the vast majority of people don't even know what it is. but my school definitely wouldn't do anything, even if they were aware of it.

TWLOHA - to write love on her arms
Its an american thing aiming to help people who struggle with self harm and suicidal thoughts, etc etc.

English schools- like mine- have probably never heard of it, and even if they had there is no way in hell they'd do anything about it.
