PINK SHIRT DAY IS ON WEDNESDAY. LET’S UNITE TO MAKE SURE EACH STUDENT CAN SAY “I BELONG HERE!”

26 Feb

Here at Brownridge Public School, we promote respect, inclusivity and kindness. This is why we will be uniting to support Pink Shirt Day on Wednesday, February 28. In 2007, Nova Scotia secondary students David Shepherd and Travis Price saw a grade nine student being bullied for wearing a pink shirt. In an effort to stand up for the student, they purchased 50 pink shirts and distributed them to other students, who wore them in solidarity.  Since David and Travis’ act of kindness in 2007, the spirit of their effort has grown each year.  In 2017, people in almost 180 countries shared their support of Pink Shirt Day through social media posts and donations.  (For more information, visit the official website for Pink Shirt Day.)

This Wednesday –February 28, 2018—is Pink Shirt Day.  Please encourage your child to wear a Pink Shirt to school that day.  Let’s promote kindness and stand up to bullying this Wednesday, and every day.

Bear Wear Update

The Brownridge Spirit clothing has been delivered and handed out.  We have seen many students wearing them to school and they look great!  We hope you are happy with the way they turned out. 

Unfortunately, we have had some garments go missing so we wanted to see if anyone received anything they were not supposed to.  If so, can you please return them to the office as soon as possible? 

If there are any other issues regarding the clothing, please let the office know. 

Thank you for your continue support and remember to have your child wear their Bear Wear or school colours on Monday, February 26th! #Wearthebear
