Pink Shirt Day is Feb. 27. Wear pink to show that you will not tolerate bullying. Bullying in any form is unacceptable and everyone has a role to play in promoting healthy relationships and preventing bullying. Let’s continue to make our school communities welcoming, caring, respectful, safe, and inclusive.
Two Nova Scotia high school students inspired Pink Shirt Day by organizing their fellow students to wear pink in support of a Grade 9 boy who was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt. Learn more about Pink Shirt Day and how the CBE works to create safe and caring school environments.
The Alberta Education website also has information posted on safe and caring school environments.
You can tweet a photo of yourself using the #pinkshirtday and #WeAreCBE hashtags.
The Board of Trustees and Chief Superintendent Chris Usih celebrate Pink Shirt Day.
