Five days after Morinville students shaved their pink hair for the Annual Hair Massacure cancer fundraiser, students were once again sporting the pink for the Annual Pink Shirt Day. The annual anti-bullying awareness initiative began in Nova Scotia in 2007 and has since spread across the country with some provinces taking part the last Wednesday in February, others on the second Thursday in September.

Local schools participated in the annual event by wearing pink, posting posters and having discussions about bullying and what defines bullying.

Above is a short video capturing some of the sights in Morinville schools Feb. 25.
