International Day of Pink

9 Apr

The International Day of Pink is happening on Wednesday, April 11, 2018.  It is a day when communities across Canada and across the world unite to celebrate diversity and raise awareness to stop all forms of discrimination and bullying.

Uniting on this day gives us an opportunity to show that as a school we stand up to bullying.  We ask all staff and students to wear pink on Wednesday to show respect for diversity and to demonstrate support for our school learning environment, one that we want to be safe and inclusive of people from all different backgrounds.

Please show your support … wear pink!
