|On February 24th, everyone is encouraged to wear something pink to show that we are all working together to prevent bullying in our schools, in our communities and online.|
You might remember that Pink Shirt Day comes from the two Nova Scotia high school students who decided to take a stand against bullying in their own school.
Bullying is a pattern of unwelcome or aggressive behaviour, often with the goal of making others uncomfortable, scared or hurt. It's almost always used as a way of having control or power over the target, and it is often based on another person's appearance, culture, race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity.
Bullying does not only happen in a school community, but also to adults by adults. It all must stop!
Sometimes it's not a bullying issue; it might be a squabble between friends or something gets amped up. Bullying behaviour is usually when an individual does something over-and-over again to another individual or to a group.
