Pink Shirt Day Aims to Promote Positive, Safe Schools
Blackville School will once again host their Annual Pink Shirt Anti-Bullying Day to promote a positive, safe school. On Wednesday, February 26 all students and staff are encouraged to wear something pink to symbolize a stand against bullying.
Pink Shirt Day originated at Central Kings Rural High School in Nova Scotia when two boys, David Shepherd and Travis Price, witnessed a male classmate being bullied for wearing a pink shirt.
The next day, these boys bought and distributed 50 pink shirts for their classmates to wear, to show the bullies that they did not approve of their behavior.
Now the last Wednesday in February is known as Pink Shirt Day throughout the country.
This year, Boys & Girls Clubs, schools, businesses, organizations and individuals across Canada will be participating in Pink Shirt Day.
