A Message from the Administrative Team:
The International Day of Pink is a Canadian anti-bullying event held annually on the second Wednesday of April. The event started when students David Shepherd and Travis Price saw another student, who was wearing a pink shirt, being bullied in their Central Kings Rural High School in Nova Scotia, and deciding to show support for the student by getting everyone at their school to wear pink the following day. This is a great opportunity to talk about what it means to be a bystander and to importance on how to support those in need. Grade 1-8 students will participate in an assembly around these issues on Wednesday.
Have a wonderous week!
