Pink Shirt Day Against Bullying!

Wear pink on Thursday, February 25 at Westminster and show your support against bullying of any kind!  Pink shirt day is a national awareness campaign supported by many schools all over Canada. Its message is to highlight bullying awareness and say No to bullying behaviour.  

While it is just one day, Pink Shirt Day spreads a powerful message across our system that bullying in any form is not acceptable. It supports our anti-bullying strategy and our drive to create safe, caring and supportive learning environments that foster student achievement and well-being. 

At Westminster, we focus on kindness, acceptance and collaboration. In this way we are teaching our students social skills and helping to develop good character traits.  

We all know what a difference it makes to student learning when students feel safe, welcome and valued at school. Our students and staff members continue to show great leadership in promoting inclusivity and in their anti-bullying efforts and we congratulate and thank all for their important work in this area.  

On February 25th we will be having a Pink Shirt Day at Westminster against bullying and ask everyone boy or girl to wear something pink!
