Seaforth Celebrates International Day of Pink – April 12, 2017.

Seaforth Celebrates International Day of Pink – April 12, 2017.  École Seaforth Elementary will celebrate The International Day of Pink which is the International Day against Bullying, Discrimination, Homophobia, Transphobia, and Transmisogyny across the world.

In Canada, “Pink Shirt Day” began when two high school students in Nova Scotia witnessed a boy being bullied for wearing a pink shirt.  They decided to take a stand.  They passed out pink shirts to their classmates and the following day, when the victim of the bullying walked into the school, he was greeted with a massive “sea of pink”.

The Seaforth pink shirt displays a powerful positive message of kindness and can be viewed in the showcase by the school office.  T- Shirt Details:  6 oz, 100% polyester jersey knit, tagless, moisture wicking, easy care fabric displaying “KINDNESS is Contagious….TOUCH somebody & infect the WORLD with it!”   Click here: Seaforth 2017 Pink Shirt Day Order Forms
