Pink Shirt Day
Please join Campbelltown staff and students on Wednesday February 22 in celebrating Pink Shirt Day by wearing a pink shirt to school!
Recognized worldwide since it began in 2007, Pink Shirt Day is an opportunity to promote healthy relationships, respect diversity and take a stand against bullying. We all share a responsibility to understand how bullying negatively impacts individuals, families and organizations, and how to be an active bystander when we witness bullying.
Here is a wonderful music video (À nos héros du quotidien) by the French artist Soprano that illustrates the power of small acts of kindness in everyday life:
