Is your school ready for Pink Shirt Day?

The OurSCHOOL survey is a valuable tool for schools facing the challenge of bullying. Schools can use the survey to gain an initial understanding of Bullying and School Safety and then monitor their survey results to measure the success of school efforts after interventions have been implemented.

Did you know February 26th is Pink Shirt Day?

  • The last Wednesday in February is Anti-Bullying Day in Canada. On this day people are encouraged to wear pink shirts to show that they stand up against bullying.
  • What started as an act of kindness in a Nova Scotian school in 2007 has now become a global movement with 180 Countries participating in Pink Shirt Day.
