Pink Shirt Day supports bullying awareness

Like many schools throughout Ontario and in the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board, Sophiasburgh Central School participated in activities to recognize Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week.  To wrap up the week, on Friday, Nov.18th, students donned pink shirts to show support of bullying awareness. The anti bullying initiative originated in Cambridge, Nova Scotia in 2007 when a Grade 9 student was bullied for wearing a pink shirt on the first day of school.  Two Grade 12 students, David and Travis heard about it, bought 50 pink shirts and had the student body wear pink shirts the next day to support the victim and show the bullies they won’t stand by and let them get away with bullying.  Since then, schools across the nation have adopted Pink Shirt Day.
