Pink Shirt Day may be more than a month out, but some Regina schools are already look ahead to it.
The campaign, launched last week by the Canadian Red Cross, works to address and end bullying in schools.
One of those schools embracing the anti-bullying message is Ruth M. Buck Elementary, which celebrated the launch of the Pink Shirt Day campaign by bringing in Saskatchewan Roughrider Dan Clark and former Rider Luc Mullinder.
Grade 8 student Keagan Curtis listened intently to Clark’s address. He pointed out someone as influential as Clark could help end bullying.
“I think they want to get the message out so they can get the students to stop bullying,” he says.
Curtis also states the significance of this initiative and the presenters was not lost on him nor his peers.
“I just think it’s really important to have the idea out there and to have him come in, it’s just really cool.”
Pink Shirt Day takes place nationwide on February 28th.
