The Toronto District School Board has a strong mandate against bullying and intolerance in schools and in the workplace. To further recognize and to stand up against bullying, we are marking April 11 as the International Day of Pink across the TDSB. This day is based on the actions in 2007 of two Nova Scotia Grade 12 students who marshalled their friends to wear pink in support of a younger student who had been bullied for wearing a pink shirt on the first day of school. The e-mail campaign mounted by the older students resulted in hundreds of students turning up the next day wearing pink in support of the bullied student. For more information click here.
