In honour of Pink Shirt Day, Student Council is asking all student to wear something pink to school tomorrow, Wednesday, Feb. 25th. If students don’t have anything pink at home, there will be pink paper hearts available at school to pin on their clothes.
In 2007, two Nova Scotia students decided to take action after witnessing a younger student being bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school. The students bought 50 pink t-shirts and encouraged schoolmates to wear them and send a powerful message of solidarity to the bully. The next day at school, over 500 youth showed up wearing pink.
