Students at C. P. Blakely School dressed in pink shirts last Wednesday to signify their stand against bullying. Acting principal Anne Frey told the students who gathered in the gymnasium “it’s wonderful to see all the pink shirts out there. We can stand up for people, we don’t need to put up with bullying. We can be caring and courteous, make sure our school stays safe.”
The students listened to the book “Have You Filled A Bucket Today”, listened to a Sesame Street video and then went for a walk around the neighbourhood.
School mascot PAWS was on hand with a pink scarf draped around its shoulders to encourage the students.
