Pink Shirt Day (Erase Bullying) on February 28, 2018

ERASE Bullying PosterOn February 28, 2018 we encourage everyone to wear something pink to show that we are all working together to prevent bullying in our schools, in our communities and online. Pink Shirt Day comes from two Nova Scotia high school students, who decided to take a stand against bullying in their own school.

What is bullying?

Simply put, bullying is a pattern of unwelcome or aggressive behaviour, often with the goal of making others uncomfortable, scared or hurt. It’s almost always used as a way of having control or power over their target, and it is often based on another person’s appearance, culture, race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity.

All incidents of bullying are serious and need to be addressed. As you’ll discover in this section, the impact bullying has on the victim and the bully is very serious.
