Pink Shirt Day – Wednesday February 23
On Wednesday, February 23, 2022, all HWDSB students and staff are encouraged to wear a pink shirt in honour of Pink Shirt Day – a day to raise awareness and stand up against bullying.
Pink Shirt or Anti-Bullying Day is recognized annually in communities across Canada. Individuals in schools and workplaces come together by wearing pink shirts to show they are against bullying. The focus for Pink Shirt Day 2022 is “Lift Each Other Up”. “Today our diversity is becoming more visible than ever as people continue to embrace their cultures, identities, and true selves in more open and direct ways; making the need to Lift Each Other Up and have greater acceptance, respect, and inclusion for everyone so important.” (http://www.pinktshirtday.ca/)
