On February 6th, 2018 the Red Cross held Anti-Bullying Presentations for Ruth Pawson students grades K-8.
In 2007, a grade 9 student in Cambridge, Nova Scotia, was bullied by classmates for wearing a pink shirt to school. Taking notice, two Grade 12 students named Travis Price and David Shepherd rallied their friends to send a message to the bullies. The next day the halls were filled with students in pink t-shirts. This was the beginning of Pink Day.
