Students wear pink to stand up against bullying

Terrace schools support anti-bullying message with pink t-shirts and events.

CASSIE HALL Elementary was one of the many schools in town that held activities for Anti-Bullying Day, also known as Pink T-shirt Day Feb. 27.

Staff, students and parent volunteers donned pink t-shirts and started the day with a homemade breakfast of pancakes, sausage, orange slices and orange juice in the school gym.

Then they settled in for a presentation that included talks from people in the community and two videos.

Skeena Middle School and Suwilaawks Community School also held similar events today.

Anti-Bullying Day, or Pink T-shirt Day started after a boy in a Nova Scotia high school wore a pink t-shirt to school and was bullied for it several years ago. His friends rallied behind him and wore pink t-shirts the next day.

The day and its anti-bullying message spread with schools across the country taking part in the day with their own activities and the wearing of pink t-shirts.
