Pink Day Highlights “Compassion Week” at NISS

“Pink Day” the highlight of a week-long NISS event to show kindness, pride, respect, compassion, and acceptance.

Dear editor,

“Pink Day” was the highlight of the week-long NISS event to show kindness, pride, respect, compassion, and acceptance.  The week started with Random Act of Kindness Monday, followed by Celebrating Diversity Tuesday, Pink Day Wednesday, NISS Unity Thursday, and Rainbow Friday.

On Pink Day, North Island Secondary School staff and students successfully sent a huge message to put an end to bullying. It was a clear message of respect and acceptance to individual differences. With the help of Vancouver Island Insurance Centers and their pink t-shirt donation, the whole school stood tall and took pride in acknowledging that bullying has no place in our society.

Well done NISS!
