Kindness Week

February 4, 2021


During the week of February 22nd to February 26th, École Julie-Riel students and staff will be having a Kindness Spirit Week to commemorate Pink Shirt day. 

Pink shirt day originated from  two Nova Scotia students who saw a younger student being bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school. In support of the victim, these two high school students went out and purchased 50 pink tank tops. They handed the shirts out the next day at school and as a group, made a statement to the bullies: this will not be tolerated in our school. The idea has grown and gathered so much support that schools across Canada now participate in this symbolic event. It is our way to voice opposition to bullying.
