On February 28th, Mountain View Campus hosted Pink Shirt Day! Pink shirts have become a symbol of the anti-bullying movement started by two high school students in 2007 in Nova Scotia, Canada.
Grades 2-4 had an assembly in the morning where they learned the W.I.T.S. acronym; W.I.T.S. stands for Walk Away, Ignore, Talk it Out, Seek Help. Kindergarten and grade one had their “Be a Buddy” assembly. At this assembly, students pledged to help others, use kind words, share, and to play with everyone.
The Pink Shirt movement has inspired people all over the world to take a stand against bullying by being upstanders instead of bystanders. It also helps the victim and the bully seek help. To learn more about this powerful movement, visit www.pinkshirtday.ca.
Thank you to our Student Support Team, Mrs. Fay, Mrs, Roshan, Mrs. Rawji, Mrs. Ferrario and also, Mr. Cooper, for organizing these wonderful assemblies!
