At Brackendale We Lift Each Other Up - Part 2

This year marks the 14th International Pink Shirt Day.

Pink Shirt Day started in 2007, when two Grade 12 students — David Shepherd and Travis Price of Nova Scotia — saw a Grade 9 student getting bullied for wearing pink. They brought a bunch of pink shirts to school and distributed them to other willing boys who donned them for the day in solidarity.

This year Ms. Moo (Julie Murakami), our wonderful music teacher, taught all of our classes 'body percussion' to "Treat People With Kindness" by Harry Styles. She then put together this video montage of their performances as well as other expressions of kindness seen around the school. Be kind ... just because.
