This day emphasizes kindness and treating others with dignity and respect.  Celebrated annually around the globe, Pink Shirt Day began in Canada in 2007 when two incredible students in Nova Scotia took a stand against homophobic bullying after a student was harassed and threatened for wearing pink.   They went out and bought pink shirts to give to fellow students to show their support for a boy who was being bullied simply for wearing a pink shirt.

The message this Pink Shirt Day, is meant to promote respect, dignity and inclusivity for all.  Pink Shirt Day is very aware of the call for social change related to systemic racism and discrimination being inextricably linked to the core purpose of this cause: that how we treat each other matters, and that we can do better. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected us all and shown the importance of helping one another and advocating for those who need it.  Let us “lift each other up” and support programs that encourage healthy self-esteem and teach empathy, compassion and kindness.  

Please join the students and staff of Coast Mountains School District 82 as we recognize Pink Shirt Day on Wednesday, February 24 by wearing a PINK Shirt to show that we are all working together to prevent bullying and to treat everyone with dignity, respect and inclusivity for all in our schools, in our communities, and on line.
