Originating from a humane story at a school in Canada, when students went to school in pink to protect a bullied male student, Pink Shirt Day has become an annual activity at all campuses of WASS, spreading the message of a loving world for students.
The overwhelming pink color and the warm hugs of WASSers in the days of April show the close friendship, and solidarity, and together spread the message to prevent school violence in the WASS community during the Pink Shirt Day. More specifically, each student’s pink shirt on this special day will contribute 10,000VND to the school’s charity fund.
With the theme “We are friends – Be nice to each other, stop bullying”, WASSers together participated in exciting and meaningful activities such as making bracelets or making cute gifts for friends.
The WASSers also designed extremely creative pink t-shirts to convey meaningful messages together. The enthusiastic response of the WASSers is the affirmation of the WASS community in its efforts to prevent school violence, join hands to build a healthy school environment, unite and cooperate to develop together.
At WASS Kindergarten, Pink Shirt Day 2022 teaches students simple but powerful lessons, encouraging respect for each person’s difference, because that’s what makes us unique. Teaching the students life values of friendship and love for people and things around them from an early age is a solid foundation to create a kind and healthy children, virtuous citizens for the future society.
Hopefully, at the annual Pink Shirt Day event, WASS students will gradually form a kind personality, sharing, empathy and love, towards the goal of bringing happiness to themselves and the community.
