Every year in February, students across Canada come together to wear pink shirts to take a stand against bullying. Pink Shirt Day was started by two Canadian students, Travis Price and David Shephard, when they stood up to homophobic bullying after seeing that a grade 10 student was being bullied and harassed for wearing the colour pink. The two students decided to gather a group of students to wear pink in support of the student who was being bullied. This is just one of the many stories that inspires students to act and positively contribute to a kinder and more welcoming school community. This year many Churchill students and staff participated in Pink Shirt Day.
