PVNC celebrates Pink Shirt Day

Pink Shirt Day 2023

Feb. 22, 2023

Today, schools celebrated Pink Shirt Day, in their best pink attire.

The theme for this year’s Pink Shirt Day is “lift each other up”, a simple but powerful message encouraging us to look beyond our differences and celebrate the things that make us unique. When we lift each other up, we see beyond the things that separate us and see instead the things that unite us as people; we can see how our differences are beautiful.

The first Pink Shirt Day was established by Travis Price and David Shepherd of Berwick, Nova Scotia.

In 2007, they bought and shared 50 pink shirts after another student got bullied for wearing a pink shirt on the first day of school.

Students at St. Patrick CES rock their pink shirts for the 2023 theme “Lift Each Other Up”.

Staff and students across the Board took part today as they wore their pink and took part in activities that focused on the conversation of bullying and how we can lift each other up as a community.
