St. Pius’ Pink Shirt Day
At St. Pius, their Pink Shirt Day was a huge success with the help of the Be Kind Online program. SaskTel provided the students with pink t-shirts to wear. For the Pink Shirt Day, the classroom lessons were designed to teach antibullying activities. The school division provided teachers with resources focused on what bullying is, support for youth, support for parents and teachers, and cyberbullying. Younger students read the “Chrysanthemum” book which highlights that we need to be sensitive to diverse populations in our schools and how important it is to acknowledge the individual identities that make up the community. Another class created a “Pink Shirt Day Quilt” to encapsulates how they can show kindness to others. Overall, it is important to St. Pius to encourage kindness, inclusivity, and respect for everyone.
