End Bullying! Wear Pink on February 22, 2017!
Pink Shirt Day is Wednesday, February 22, 2017. The Deputy Minister of Education and Clearview Public Schools encourages students, staff and families, to wear pink and make a pink promise as we work together to promote healthy relationships and prevent bullying.
Being proactive in preventing bullying means that we accept shared responsibility for the creation and maintenance of learning and work environments that are safe and welcoming for all students, their families and staff. Participating in events like Pink Shirt Day shows leadership in our schools and communities. This display of support is the foundation for creating bullying prevention strategies and modelling healthy relationships.
