Think pink: Clayton Heights Secondary unites against bullies

Staff and students gather for a photo on Anti Bullying Day.

Students of all abilities, along with teachers and education assistants at Clayton Heights Secondary dressed in pink for anti-bullying day Wednesday.

From firefighters and police to students, teachers and parents, on Feb. 25, people across the city donned pink T-shirts as part of an anti-bullying awareness campaign.

Surrey RCMP officers visited local high schools across the city. Senior officers and those with the detachment’s Youth Unit wore pink in support of the campaign and helped spread the word about the negative impacts of bullying.

Surrey students can report bullying anonymously through the website www.psst-bc.ca. For more information and tips to share please visit:

A poll released Wednesday found three-quarters of Canadian adults said they were bullied in school. The Angus Reid Institute online poll also said more than half of today’s parents say their children in school have experienced bullying.

Nine in 10 respondents (89 per cent) said the issue of bullying in school today is either “very serious” (47 per cent) or “serious” (42 per cent).

A majority of respondents in B.C. said schools are reacting appropriately well to bullying (57 per cent).
