Decked out in pink shirts provided by the Violence Prevention Committee South and Central, the students of Exploits Valley Intermediate took part in Pink Day on Feb. 24 to speak out collectively about bullying.

The slogan on the shirts was “the power of change is in our hands,” - a positive message about being supportive, respectful and standing up to others.

The “Youth for Equality” student group, (a Gay-Straight Alliance which meets weekly at the school) hosted a booth in the hallway where students could sign a pledge of support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender teens and their allies, who are often bullied and isolated. It was the first of many awareness activities for the “Youth for Equality” club, and club members were pleased at how supportive the students and staff were of the group.
