This is a bit of a delayed post as we were having technical difficulties. On February 29th, across Canada, students take time to stand together against bullying and discrimination. At Strathcona, we came together at an assembly to share our thoughts. The students in division 5, Mr. McInnes’s class, had been working to raise awareness throughout the month of February. They shared powerful messages, they sold the Anti-bullying Pink t-shirts and pink accessories to staff and students. They did an an amazing job decorating our auditorium with pink and messages about the impact of bullying. They are amazing student leaders! I planned to share some messages that day at the assembly, but the work of these students and then the amazing message put together by the students in Ms. Daly’s class left me speechless. I knew that there was nothing I could share at that moment that could possibly deliver a more powerful message than those already expressed by these students. I know I can’t possibly capture the essence of that assembly, but I do what to share the video created by Ms.Daly’s students and share some images from that day. This is the video link for you to enjoy: PINK DAY
