Think pink: Send us your Stand Up Against Bullying Day photos

Rainbow board students encouraged to wear pink today as an anti-bullying symbol

Today is Stand Up Against Bullying Day at Rainbow District School Board schools, and staff and students were encouraged to wear pink for the occasion.

Stand Up Against Bullying Day began in Nova Scotia where secondary school students Travis Price and David Shepherd arranged for dozens of their classmates to wear pink shirts in support of another student who had been bullied for wearing pink. 

The Province of Nova Scotia subsequently declared the second Thursday at the start of every school year to be Stand Up Against Bullying Day.

Did you or your children wear pink in honour of Stand Up Against Bullying Day? Send your photos to or post them in the comments below, and we'll include them in our photo gallery.
