River Elm Students Wear Pink to Stand Up to Bullying

Students from River Elm School will don pink T-shirts on Wednesday as part of an anti-bullying campaign.

More than 300 students and staff will take part in the Pink Shirt Day campaign, which is taking place nationwide to symbolize taking a stand against bullying.

The national movement was inspired by a grassroots campaign in Central Kings Rural High School in Nova Scotia. Students Travis Price and David Shepherd convinced 50 of their peers to wear pink after a student was bullied for wearing a similar coloured shirt the first day of school.

Some Elmwood High School students and members of the University of Manitoba “Bisons Against Bullying” campaign will attend the 1:15 p.m. assembly to provide encouragement.
