Pink Shirt Day....Coming soon!
Pink shirt day is Wednesday Feb 22nd and we encourage students to support this anti-bullying campaign by wearing a pink shirt. The official shirt can be purchased (while supplies last) online HERE often carried by London Drugs (or wear your own).
We encourage all students to parade their pink shirts as they walk to school and if you live too far, park 5 minutes away to join the parade. The Nova Scotia students who started the movement took a stand, let our students STOMP out bullying by walking united together.
