Principal's Message

February 23, 2022 is Pink Shirt Day at RTA

​Wednesday, February 23, 2022 is Pink Shirt Day
Two Nova Scotia high school students inspired Pink Shirt Day by organizing their fellow students to wear pink in support of a Grade 9 boy who was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt. Bullying can happen to anyone, anywhere.
Pink Shirt Day is a time to encourage Albertans to stand up to bullying when they see it in schools, communities, workplaces, at home and online.
Show you care by checking in with one another. Learn #WhereToTurn if you or someone you know is experiencing bullying:
