PRSS high school is having an anti-bullying day tomorrow and we are encouraging everyone to wear red or pink to show your support in the community.
I was asked to post a message on Hacking the main frame to spread the word.
I don’t know if everyone is aware but last Thursday a Facebook group was encouraging students across Canada to pick on kids with red hair, by kicking them, based on a South Park episode from a few years ago. Several students across the province were kicked and harassed as a result of this. Some have even ended up in the hospital.
After finding out about this teachers and students talked about what could be done to stop these types of behaviour.
As a result the students in our school have decided to protest this type of behaviour by standing in solidarity against bullying of any sort by wearing red or pink. Their hope is that by standing together against bullying in any shape or form that this type of behaviour will stop.
So if you want to join in please wear red or pink in your support of stopping bullying everywhere.
ps. . You can find out more about it these incidents by doing a google search on “kick a ginger day” or by looking at cbc.ca website under news for bc.
