Superintendent's Message - Pink Shirt Day 2019

It is always uplifting to see the power that is generated when people join in solidarity.  Pink Shirt Day is a perfect example of how a simple action, deciding to wear pink on February 27, indicates to everyone that our community supports healthy relationships and takes a stand against bullying.  Pink Shirt Day originated in Nova Scotia in 2007 when a male student was targeted by others for wearing a pink shirt to school.  In response, hundreds of students showed up the following morning wearing pink both as a way to support the student and to demonstrate that bullying behaviours cannot be tolerated.  Pink Shirt Day is a powerful statement about belonging! 

The Alberta theme for this year is Choose Kindness – Kindness is Contagious.
