From Peterborough Lakefield Community Police Service Media Release...
PINK SHIRT Day event
Tomorrow, February 23, is Pink Shirt Day. Police will be wearing the ugliest pink baseball hats you have ever seen in support of Pink Shirt Day (pink shirts just weren't feasible!) Students will be at the Station at 9am to receive their very own ugly pink hat, and to show solidarity against bullying in our community.
Wearing pink tomorrow symbolizes that we, as a society, will not tolerate bullying! Wear PINK!
Our school officers deal with issues of bullying, especially cyber-bullying, every day. Research has shown that the effects of bullying are crippling and long term. Police work in concert with teachers and school boards to educate students about the bully, the bullied and the bystander.
