Join in celebrating Pink Shirt Day!

Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board is a system of character and is pleased to recognize Pink Shirt Day on Wednesday, April 11, 2012. This annual event is a time to encourage a shared belief in celebrating diversity and universal acceptance by wearing a pink shirt. It is also a time to acknowledge and support ongoing efforts to increase awareness of bullying prevention initiatives and the work of Safe Schools teams in our schools.

The majority of our elementary and secondary schools are participating, as well as employees at the Education Centre. We acknowledge the involvement of community partners who are also showing their support by wearing pink. To date, close to 2,600 pink T-shirts have been sold, with Trenton High School taking the lead for orders and engaging school and community involvement.

Promoting character development through acceptance, equity and inclusivity is a priority at Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board. It is our belief that equity and inclusivity are the foundation for safe, caring and respectful learning environments.

Through our Growing with Character initiative and events such as Pink Shirt Day, we endeavour to:

A sea of pink will flow throughout Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board tomorrow. Thank you for your ongoing efforts to support safe, caring and respectful classrooms and schools.
