Standing up to bullying in Fort St. John

 

They danced their way to the gymnasium for a flash mob, dancing to several songs and watching videos of other Pink Shirt Day celebrations. Teacher Dan Davies spoke to them about how important it is to tell someone when they see bullying, and that every day should be anti-bullying day, not just today.
 
The last Wednesday in February is celebrated as Pink Shirt Day, or the Canadian National Day of Anti-Bullying. The event was originally started after a student was bullied at a Nova Scotia high school for wearing a pink shirt on the first day of school. Two teenaged boys bought and distributed 50 pink shirts to protest against bullying.
