"Stop Bullying" - Wear Pink On Wednesday Feb. 23rd

Posted: February 18, 2011

Pink Shirt Day began in Nova Scotia where two students stood up to bullying in their high school.  A male student was bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school and these students showed their support for him by buying pink shirts and encouraging other students to wear them.  To learn more about this story visit www.pinkshirtday.ca. In recognition of Pink Shirt Day on Wed. February 23 all staff and students are being encouraged to take a stand against bullying.  Students and staff will be encouraged to wear something pink, sign an anti-bullying pledge, and to perform random acts of kindness.  By performing acts of kindness we are creating an environment that is safe and supportive and where bullying is less likely to occur so give somebody a compliment, hold a door open for somebody, or do something else that shows you care.
