Day of Pink
Students at École Garden Grove School participated in the Day of Pink on April 10th.
What is Day of Pink?
Day of Pink began when a boy
wore a pink shirt to school. A few other kids bullied him because of
the pink shirt he wore. His friends saw what they were doing and decided
make a statement against bullying. The next day they bought pink
t-shirts and gave them to other boys and girls in their school.
Our school has participated in the Day of Pink to support
anti-bullying. We ordered pink shirts from the Red Cross and we wore
them on April 10th. We had a kick off assembly on April 4th so that the
Action Group could tell the other students about Day of Pink.
Everyone at École Garden Grove School is aware of this day and
supports anti-bullying. It is our hope that the students will continue
to wear their pink shirts to support anti-bullying.
Action Group organized the kick off assembly, ordered the shirts, put
up posters and did presentations just for the Day of Pink. They got
together at lunch, after school and at recess time. They also worked on
the Day of Pink posters over Spring Break.
On April 10th, we had a second assembly. We watched videos and talked
about bullying. One of the videos was about a girl named Molly Burke,
and her experience being bullied. We talked about a boy named Iqbal
Masih. After we talked about him we played the song ‘Everybody Dance
Now’. Then we shouted, "Flash Mob", and some kids from grade 6 danced to
the song. We did that as a Random Act of Kindness for our school.
We understand that bullying is a very important matter and the
students at École Garden Grove School would like to help others who are
being bullied. Next April 10th, please wear pink to support
