Pink Shirt Day- Wednesday, February 26th.

Pink Shirt Day began in 2007 when two high school students decided to take a stand against bullying in their school in Berwick, Nova Scotia. After witnessing a younger student being bullied for wearing a pink shirt, David Shepherd and Travis Price, along with many other students, donned their pink shirts in support of the victim of the bullying. That simple but powerful act of kindness ignited a spark in youth around the world and has subsequently led to an influential anti-bullying movement. Today, wearing pink shows support for healthy relationships and a commitment to work together to create learning and work environments that are caring, safe, and free from bullying behaviours.

The focus for Pink Shirt Day in 2020 is raising awareness of bullying prevention and ensuring that students know where to turn if they need help. Check out our website for additional info and resources:
