Portage College supports Pink Shirt Day, joining thousands others across Canada who stand against bullying.
It is a day to spread awareness about bullying, whether it is in schools, the workplace, homes or online.
There is an astonishing 1 in 5 kids who will be affected by bullying. (CKNW Kids’Fund, https://www.pinkshirtday.ca/).
Take a look at these resources to learn more about bullying so we can help combat it: https://www.pinkshirtday.ca/resources.
Did you know Alberta also has a free bullying helpline and online chat service? Learn more here: https://www.alberta.ca/bullying-find-supports.aspx .
Let's show our support for anti-bullying efforts by wearing PINK shirts to campus on Wednesday, February 28th!
If you're not on campus, you can still participate by posting a picture to the Portage App or Counseling Facebook page with the hashtag #PCPinkShirtDay2024.
Together, let's create a culture of inclusivity and kindness.
