Pink Shirt Day was inspired by two Nova Scotia high school students who organized their fellow students to wear pink in support of a Grade 9 boy who was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt.
On Wednesday, Feb. 23, you can show your support for welcoming, caring, respectful, safe, and inclusive school communities by wearing a pink shirt. It is a day to encourage everyone to stand up to bullying when they see it in schools, communities, workplaces, at home and online.
This year’s theme, #BeKindAB, urges everyone to be inclusive, welcoming and supportive to others. Building healthy relationships is one of the best ways to prevent bullying and create safe environments.
Promoting inclusion is something that occurs in our school everyday. We remain committed to advancing equity and antiracism within the school system through the work of
CBE CARES (Collaboration for Anti-Racism and Equity Supports). This requires continuous work that requires open conversation with staff, students, and community. Let’s take care of one another and promote healthy relationships.
