On April 8th, 2014, JHS students in grades 5-9 will travel to the Turvey Centre in Regina to take part in a Day of Pink rally to show their support of respect and to stand up against bullying. This rally is the second annual such gathering held in Regina, and JHS is pleased to have our students attend.
The following day, April 9th, is the official Day of Pink. The Day of Pink started in 2007 when a male student in a Nova Scotia high school was bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school. The following day, hundreds of students wore pink to school as a statement that bullying would not be tolerated. Since then, thousands of people across the country have shown their support of the anti-bullying movement by wearing pink in April. JHS is proud to be a part of this important camaign. Pink shirts have been purchased for all the students and staff members for Day of Pink, and students are asked to wear them to school on April 9th. You can support Day of Pink, too, by wearing your own pink clothing on April 9th!
