Yesterday the International Day of Pink was recognized in our schools. At McIsaac School students wore pink and held a school wide pink pancake breakfast. Guidance Councilor Carrie Alexander says it raised awareness at the school. She adds the Day of Pink is sponsored by the Canadian Red Cross and it’s for bullying prevention awareness. She says they’ve had a lot of great donations from the community so it was a real community event this year.
At Ruth Betts Community School they had pink cupcakes and wrist bands, an awareness assembly, spot dances and prizes. At Creighton Community School students wore pink today and on March 27th they held a anti-bullying awareness assembly and students wore pink on that day as well.
