PINK SHIRT DAY! Feb. 26, 2014

Mark your calendars on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 for the Seventh Annual Pink Shirt Anti-Bullying Day.

Raising awareness about the issue of bullying in schools, communities and workplaces has become a serious and important social issue over the last number of years. Pink Shirt Day was born in 2007 when a grade 9 boy from Nova Scotia was bullied on the first day of high school because he was wearing a pink shirt. Two fellow students Travis Price and David Shepherd, decided to take action and bought fifty pink shirts and handed them out the next day to their fellow students. As word spread about what they were doing and why, half the school wore pink shirts in support the next day.

We encourage all students and staff to wear pink shirts on Feb. 26. All St. Jean Students who were present on Pink Shirt Day during the 2012/2013 school year, received Anti-Bullying Pink T-Shirts, bring them out again to show your support for this very important awareness program!
