February 24, 2021 marks the 14th anniversary of Pink Shirt Day. Pink Shirt Day is recognized world-wide as a day dedicated to raising awareness about bullying, a day during which we educate our youth about forms of bullying and how we can stand up to bullying behaviour. On Pink Shirt Day, we wear pink to stand in solidarity against bullying, and spread kindness and compassion throughout our community.
A message from Mrs. Gillard: "Pink Shirt Day is when all Canadians are asked to take a stand against bullying - and to make that stance public by wearing a pink shirt. Pink Shirt Day began in Canada in 2007 when two students, David Sheppard and Travis Price, took a stand against homophobic bullying after a Grade 9 student was harrassed and threatened for wearing pink. So Mustangs, let's see a huge sea of pink on the 24th! Pink shrt and uniform bottoms please."
