The Ministry of Education has declared February 28, 2024, as Pink Shirt Day in Saskatchewan.

Pink Day began in 2007, when a grade nine student in Cambridge, Nova Scotia was bullied by classmates for wearing a pink shirt to school. Taking notice, two students rallied their peers to send a message to the bullies. The next day, the halls were filled with students in pink T-shirts.
Now the movement is worldwide, educating and inspiring others to stand together and take action against violence and bullying.

Saskatchewan Rivers Public School Division continues to create a positive and inclusive culture in our schools.  One of our students created the theme “Raise Your Voice”, and will be our theme once again this year.

Not only today, but every day, we should all be kind, say no to bullying and raise our voices to support each other.
