Students from Oscar Lathlin Collegiate sold pink T-shirts at the Otineka Mall this week to raise awareness for anti bullying week. The Students involved were part of the schools Youth Leadership Group and the Sources of Strength Group.
According to pink shirt days website a teenage boy in Nova Scotia was once bullied for wearing a pink shirt so these shirts help to show awareness and support for people that have been bullied and the shirts being sold have the words “Be Kind Always” printed on them.
Even though bullying isn't a serious issue at OLC is has been a problem at Joe A Ross School. The students believe that a support group would be beneficial for Joe A Ross School to help students that are being bullied.
They encourge people that are being bullied to not be afraid to ask for help and to stand up for themselves, but without hurting someone.
The Pink T Shirts can still be purchased at OLC for 10 dollars all proceeds go towards the youth leadership group and the sources of strengths group.
