Did you wear Pink today?

Thousands of students, teachers, parents and anti-bulling campaigners commemorated international bullying awareness day today.

Liam, Conor & Kristine all went out the door in adorned in Pink today. The goal of the Pink Shirt Day bullying awareness campaign is show that there are ways to stop bullying at work, home, school, in our communities and online.

The annual event began in 2007 in Nova Scotia when David Shepherd and Travis Price witnessed a kid in grade nine being bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school. They and some friends wore pink shirts to school the following day. The bullying ceased.

international bullying awareness day is now observed in the United States and in cyberspace!
