Dairy Flat School students raised $400 for the Mental Health Foundation as they got behind Pink Shirt Day’s anti-bullying message. Pictured are Year 2 students with their teachers. Right, Stanmore Bay students, including these Year 4s from Room 17, are big supporters of Pink Shirt Day.
Pink Shirt Day continues to grow in popularity on the Hibiscus Coast.
Held last month, on May 17-21, it is a way to share a message that bullying is never acceptable.
A large number of local schools, businesses and Council-owned facilities such as the Stanmore Bay Pool and Leisure Centre got in on the act, wearing pink outfits and decorating their premises.
Pink Shirt Day began in Canada in 2007 when two students took a stand against homophobic bullying, after a peer was bullied for wearing a pink shirt.
