Thank you to the schools and community partners

Every February, students, staff and school communities of the Algoma District School Board wear pink to show support for "Pink Shirt Day", a national anti-bullying campaign. Student Senate members have annually taken a lead role in this initiative and set

up activities designed to encourage their schools and school communities to take part. At ADSB schools, the event has evolved into a day of celebration with a concerted focus on recognizing the importance of promoting the acceptance of all.

In addition to wearing pink, students and staff plan assemblies and rallies and fundraise through the sale of pink cotton candy and treats.

Pink Shirt Day is a perfect tie in to Algoma District School Board’s mission statement: We build confident learners and caring citizens. Wearing pink is just one way we demonstrate that we are caring citizens. It is a way for our students and staff to show that we respect diversity and contribute to making our schools and communities, safe and caring places.
