Pink Day is the annual event in support of putting an end to bullying across the nation! On February 28, Mulgrave’s Heads Up Club will be running an Upper School-wide Pink Day event to encourage students to stand up to bullying by not being bystanders. This is a very apt focus for the day as Pink Day originated when students in a high school stood up for a young boy who was being bullied for wearing a pink T-shirt. They did so by handing out pink T-shirts to all the students at their school and successfully deterred the bullies from harassing others. Participants of Mulgrave’s Pink Day are thence asked to wear pink and bring $2 in order to do so—their money will be donated to support the Boys and Girls Clubs of Western Canada and the Red Cross Respect-Ed Violence Prevention Program.
