Pink Shirt Day – Nice needs no filter

Nice needs no filter

It really needs no filter

Nice means embrace all

Love All and respect all

All colours are beautiful

All choices are beautiful

It’s Ok to be different

It’s OK to feel different

Wear blues or wear pinks

Dance together and create links

Do not harrase anyone

Don’t bully anyone

Don’t get mad at anyone

We all are people

We all are the same

Love people

Do not judge people

Love all the people

Let’s stop bullying

Let’s stop bullying


Pink Shirt Day
The original event was organized by David Shepherd and Travis Price of Berwick, Nova Scotia, who in 2007 bought and distributed 50 pink shirts after male ninth grade student Charles Mcneil was bullied for wearing a pink shirt during the first day of school

In 2008, the then Premier of British Columbia, Gordon Campbell proclaimed February 27 to be the provincial anti-bullying day.[3] It was then celebrated on February 25 in 2009. In 2009, Boys and Girls Clubs worked on pink T-shirts that say “Bullying Stops Here.” and “Pink Shirt Day” for Anti-Bullying Day
We dollow the BC date and celebrate Pink Shirt Day Feb 28th each year

this year the theme is #niceneedsnofilter to raise support for prevention of cyberbullying

The Watson Lake Health Centre staff has supported Pink Shirt Day at Watson Lake Secondary the past few years to support students to stop bullying others as targeted bullying in schools remains an issue and students are often isolated and picked on for being different or expressing their uniqueness.

By hosting a fun activity we hope to raise awareness and support students to stop bullying behaviours that can have dangerous outcomes if allowed to continue

Hope this helps
