Alberni District Secondary School Leadership students visited elementary schools in the community today, Feb. 24, 2016, to teach kids about the impacts of bullying for Pink Shirt Day.

Beyond the Hurt’ is an anti-bullying education program, taught by the Red Cross, to leadership students who share their message with elementary and middle school students in the district.

Beyond the Hurt will promote healthy relationships and anti-bullying behaviours through interactive activities.

Coast Capital is contributing to anti-bullying campaigns by donating $1 every time someone uses the hashtag #PinkItForward for @pinkshirtday.

Other people in the Alberni Valley have gotten behind Pink Shirt Day as well. We encourage people to share their Pink Shirt Day photos on our Facebook page, Facebook.com/albernivalleynews.
