Pink Shirt Day 2020

Posted on

To show our support for a welcoming, caring, respectful, safe and inclusive school culture, Medicine Hat Catholic will be wearing pink on Wednesday, February 26th!

This year's theme is: "Lift each other up"

Where did Pink Shirt Day come from?

In 2007 in Nova Scotia, Grade 12 students David Shepherd, Travis Price and a few friends saw that a grade 9 student was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt on the first day of school.

They knew they had to do something to show that this kind of behavior was not okay.

They decided to go out and buy pink shirts and hand them out to other students to wear. 

By the end of that week, most of the students in the school were wearing pink shirts to show support for the grade 9 student who was bullied.
