We were certainly in the pink this morning at the school as students, staff and teachers dawned their new pink t-shirts in order to support building awareness against bullying with the Pink Shirt Campaign.

The Pink t-shirt campaign commenced in Nova Scotia back in 2007.  Two incredible Nova Scotia high school students were concerned when a fellow student was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt so they decided to take a stand. They went out and bought pink shirts to give to fellow students to show their support for a boy who was being bullied simply for wearing a pink shirt and today the campaign has gone all across Canada.

We were delighted to have Official School Trustee Lois Byers, Gord Atkinson, superintendent and Krystal  Potts- executive assistant join us in honouring Pink Day.  Thanks for visiting and saying hello to all the students, staff and teachers!
