See Pink, think anti bullying!

Today is Pink Shirt Day at Queen Elizabeth School in Picton. The anti bullying initiative originated in Cambridge, Nova Scotia in 2007 when a Grade 9 student was bullied for wearing a pink shirt 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. Prince Edward OPP Constable Kim Guthrie is shown above with her DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) class sporting a lot of pink initiative. “I’m very proud of the Queen Elizabeth students for taking this seriously and am excited to see just how many students are wearing their pink shirts today.”
