Background: The last Wednesday of February is known as Anti-Bullying Day in Canada. It's also known as "Pink Shirt Day". Originally started as a protest against a bullying incident at a Nova Scotia high school, on this day participants are asked to wear pink to symbolize a stand against bullying.
Evolution: In February 2010 Pink Shirt Day took place on 7 continents in 75 countries, every province in Canada and every state in the United Sates.
Why Participate: Bullying can take place anyplace, anywhere, anytime. It could be on the school playground, classroom, and workplace or at home. There are many types of bullying; cyber-bullying, psychological abuse, school bullying, sexual bullying, verbal abuse, and workplace just to name a few.
Together we can make a stand against bullying!
This year, Griffiths-Scott School will take part in Pink Shirt Day on Wednesday, February 24th.
