Pink Shirt Day began as a simple act of kindness, demonstrated by youth from a small town in Nova Scotia, Canada. Two teenage boys took a stand against classmates who were bullying another boy for wearing a pink shirt. They brought pink shirts for all of the boys in Grade 9 to wear on the same day, to show solidarity with the boy who had been bullied. The movement has now taken off and is recognized across the globe in a show of solidarity.
Students and staff in Palliser recognized Pink Shirt Day on Wednesday, February 24, 2021. Together, we can stand up to bullying.
