Pink Day 2021

FEBRUARY 9, 2021 -- School divisions across Saskatchewan will celebrate Pink Day on Wednesday, February 24, 2021.

Pink Day started in 2007, when a Grade 9 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.

Pink Day started because two boys chose to do something about bullying rather than stand by and watch it happen. Now the movement is worldwide, educating and inspiring others to stand together to create an environment of anti-bullying, inclusion, belonging and respect.
