The power of pink will be shown in schools across School District 27 next week for Pink Shirt Day or Anti-Bullying Day on Wednesday, February 24

While the COVID-19 pandemic has wrinkled in normal Pink Shirt Day events held in schools across B.the important event will continue to be recognized and celebrated in the district

On the Williams Lake campus of Lake City Secondary School, leadership teacher Caitlin Sabatino said the day would be a little different but noted its importance

“COVID-19 has made teaching a challenge this year as events and gatherings that guest speakers could attend can no longer exist as they did before,” Sabatino said, but noted that the class was all staff and Students are encouraged to wear pink garments

“On Pink Shirt Day, we will be doing random acts of kindness in the school and appearing in the commons for students to view throughout the day”

“There is one day in the year to really focus on reducing, and hopefully eliminating, bullying in everyday life,” she said, noting one of the most problematic ways that bullying occurs at the high school level is through social Media Apps

“If we can raise awareness of how widespread and hurtful bullying can be, online and offline, hopefully we can help one or many people in school to make a difference”
