Why do Panthers “Pink Out” every Wednesday?
Each Wednesday of the school year, Panthers make a conscious effort to wear pink as a visible symbol and public stance against bullying. The color pink was chosen purposefully. It is based on a campaign started by Travis Price and David Shepherd, two students from Berwick, Nova Scotia, who in 2007 took a stand for a fellow student, Jadrien Cota who was bullied for wearing a pink shirt on the first day of school.
Participation by staff and students by wearing the Pink Out shirt also identifies a peer based support structure to victims and their bullies in a non-confrontational way.
Please join the Panther Nation by purchasing one of three styles of our “Pink Out” shirts and wear it each Wednesday as a visible sign that YOU are taking a stand against bullying.
