Sept. 28 marks International Stand Up to Bullying Day
Sept. 28 marks International Stand Up to Bullying Day. To date, more than 3,100 schools and workplaces representing more than a million people have taken part in this celebration.
School staff told students that bullying can be verbal, social, physical or can happen on the Internet.
Students were reminded that if they witness any bullying in the school yard, it is important that they report it to their teacher or school staff immediately.
"Wearing pink today represents our school message to all bullies: We are standing up as a community against bullying, so we are wearing our pink shirts with pride and confidence recognizing that each of us has the power to make a difference,” said Jennifer Gran, St. David Grade 4/5 teacher, in a press release.
