Pink Shirt Day is coming on Wednesday and Timberline Student Advocates are doing several things to support the Anti-bullying message.

Pink Shirt Day started as a protest against bullying incident at a Nova Scotia high school. Supporters wear pink to symbolize a stand against bullying.

Timberline’s actions include:

  • ordering Pink T-Shirts for the Student Advocates and for interested staff.
  • doing 10 PSA scripts performed by our Student Advocates for the River radio station to aired before Feb. 27.
  • sending a group of students to an elementary school to do readings of anti-bullying children’s books - donating the book to the school/class afterwards.
  • producing anti-bullying buttons produced by students using the school district’s button making machine.
  • showing anti-bullying PSA’s on in-school live morning announcements.
  • sending videos to Parry Aftab’s national anti-bullying campaign.
  • applying for two of the Ministry of Education anti-bullying grants.
  • having anti-bullying as an in school theme for Safe Schools and Social Responsibility for Dec/Jan.
