Pink Shirt Day across Canada is Wednesday February 26th. Pink Shirt Day originated in Nova Scotia when two students organized the day to protest against bullying in their school. They distributed pink shirts to all of the boys to wear in empathy with a boy who was being bullied. The day has grown over the years and now we are all asked to wear pink on this day to help stop bullying. A number of schools in ASD-N are marking this day, on or about Feb. 26th.

Another fun day during our Winter Carnival. Today we had Pink Day and Crazy Hair Day. Teams also competed in the Paper Airplane Contest.
