Think Pink

Vegreville Composite High School will be one of many schools across the country to acknowledge 'Pink Shirt Day' on Wednesday ...

Wellness Coach at V.C.H.S. Kirsten McSween says the school plans on having photo booth, snacks and prizes for those students who participate.

McSween says that while 'Pink Shirt Day' is important, it's also important to keep the intact attitude all year long.

'Pink Shirt Day' is now a movement celebrated across the globe on the last Wednesday of February, raising funds in support of 'Boys & Girls' clubs and awareness in the fight against bullying. 

It started in 2007 when two students in Nova Scotia stood up for a fellow student who was bullied for wearing pink.

The pair organized a high-school protest and distributing pink T-shirts to all the boys in their school.
