February 27 is Pink Shirt Day!

The theme this year is Cyber Bullying. Why? Well, the dawn of social media brought with it a whole new way to interact, communicate, and even bully. In this digital world where filtered photos and crafted messages can be posted in an instant, it takes very little effort to say something mean. However, this year the focus is emphasizing how little effort it takes to say something nice!

Kindness requires no manipulation, no focusing on the negatives, and no filtering of yourself. It’s simply, being nice for the sake of being nice! For social media users, we want them to THINK before they post. We want them to ask themselves if it is: True, Helpful, Inspiring, Necessary and Kind.

On Wednesday February 27th we invite all staff and students to wear pink to show their support of kindness and their commitment to stand up to bullying, online and in person. Check out @heritagegirltalk on Instagram for a positive scrolling experience <3
