Pink Shirt Day – Wednesday, February 26
On Wednesday, February 26, all HWDSB students and staff are encouraged to wear a pink shirt in honour of our first of two Pink Shirt Days (the second is in April), to raise awareness and stand up against bullying. Pink Shirt – or Anti-Bullying – Day is recognized annually in communities across Canada. In schools and workplaces, people come together by wearing pink shirts to show that they oppose bullying.
The focus for Pink Shirt Day 2020 is to “life each other up; a simple but powerful message encouraging us to look beyond our differences and celebrate the things that make us unique. When we life each other up, we see past the things that separate us and see instead the things that unite us as people.”
