Dear Parents and Guardians,
Wednesday, February 25th is Pink Shirt Day. In 2008, the then Premier of British Columbia, Gordon Campbell proclaimed February 27th to be the provincial anti-bullying day. It was then celebrated on February 25th in 2009. In 2009, the Boys and Girls Clubs worked on pink T-shirts that say “Bullying Stops Here” and “Pink Shirt Day” for Anti-Bullying Day. We would like to raise awareness that Bullying does not belong anywhere, including Port Hardy Secondary School.
Your son or daughter has been invited to have a hotdog lunch in the Multi-purpose room on this day. There will be information about the purpose and history of “Pink Shirt Day” along with a few booths on the types of bullying and prevention. At 1:15, individual classes will be invited to the Multi-purpose room to watch a few clips about facts and realities of bullying. If you are interested in viewing these clips, click the links below.
