On February 22, 2017 the students and staff of Stephen Central Public School stood together for PEACE to stop bullying by celebrating “Pink Shirt Day”. The school came together in an assembly lead by students to raise awareness about the importance of choosing PEACE and treating one another with kindness and respect and to stand together to stop bullying everywhere.
The original Pink Shirt Day was organized by David Shepherd and Travis Price of Berwick, Nova Scotia, who in 2007 bought and distributed 50 pink shirts after male ninth grade student Jadrien Cota was bullied for wearing a pink shirt during the first day of school.
“Stephen Central Public School is proud to stand together as a community rooted in PEACE, kindness, compassion and inclusion, regardless of our differences. It is our differences that make us unique, special, extraordinary and strong. At Stephen Central Public School we Choose Inclusion and Peace!
