Stand up against bullies
Bullying is a growing problem in the world today, and every year we hear more and moreincidents coming up of bullying in schools everywhere. Bullying doesn’t stop in school, though, itextends out into the world outside of school and even into the virtual world of the internet.
Bullying doesn’t tend to follow any kind of rhyme or reason, it’s merely the exertion of powerover those who are weaker or stand out as unusual. Pink Day is a day dedicated to beating thebullies and breaking the cycle that creates and perpetuates this damaging behavior in schools.
Pink Day was established in 2007 after a pair of students, David Shepherd and Travis Price, sawone of their fellow students at Central Kings Rural High School being bullied for no other reasonthan that they were wearing a pink shirt.
In a stroke of brilliance, these two got together and decided to show support for the student andtake a stand against bullying by getting everyone at their school to wear a pink shirt the nextday. Pink Day was created to stomp out all bullying and spread understanding, and it’s a conceptspreading throughout the world.
Grade 5 teachers and students celebrated Pink Day, by creating posters advocating for kindness,and anti-bullying.
