Pink Shirt Day 2016
Posted on February 24
Schools across Northland School Division participated in Pink Shirt Day on February 24th. Pink Shirt Day began in 2007 when two teens in Nova Scotia noticed a younger student in their school being bullied for wearing a pink shirt to class. To show their support, the students bought pink shirts and gave them to students and teachers at their high school to wear on the same day. Since then, Pink Shirt Day is celebrated internationally to promote bullying prevention and healthy relationships. Many of our schools showed their spirit by wearing pink and participating in events in and around the community.
At Athabasca Delta Community School, Athabasca Tribal Council (ATC) unveiled its anti-bullying video! The video, produced by the RCMP Foundation, focuses on the importance of showing kindness to everyone and it features Fort Chipewyan community leaders and members. Click here to watch the video.
