Red Cross Pink Day is an initiative that provides students, staff and the community with the opportunity to discuss the impact of bullying and how they can use their power to help create a safe and respectful school environment.  Students and staff are invited to wear pink shirts in solidarity to show that bullying is unacceptable and to Imagine No Bullying.
