St Peter’s students took on a bright hue on Friday 17th May as we celebrated “Pink Shirt Day”. The national campaign aims to raise awareness about the power that everyone has to reduce and prevent bullying. The mufti day with the pink shirt theme also raised money for Red Cross.
The idea of the pink shirt is to show that people have the power to combat bullying if they stand together. The idea originated in Canada five years ago, when a group of students dressed in pink shirts to show solidarity with a boy at their school who had been bullied because of the colour of the shirt he was wearing.
