Pink Shirt Day
In 2007 in Nova Scotia, Grade 12 students David Shepherd, Travis Price and a few friends saw that a Grade 9 student was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt on the first day of school.
They knew they had to do something to show that this kind of behavior was not OK.
They decided to go out and buy a bunch of pink shirts and hand them out to other students to wear.
By the end of that week, most of the students in the school were wearing pink shirts to show support for the Grade 9 student who was bullied.
Pink Shirt Day this year is on Wednesday, February 23rd. Please remember to wear pink in support of anti-bullying and creating a more kind, inclusive world.
Our Belmont Music Department choir recorded this piece “Secret For the Mad” in the spirit of kindness for Pink Shirt Day. Enjoy!
