Red Deer Public School students participated in Pink Shirt Day on Wednesday to take kindness to new heights.

The goal was to raise awareness about the need for tolerance and to send an anti-bullying message.

Pupils rallied around the slogan “Lift Each Other Up,” which encouraged them to look beyond their differences and celebrate all the things that make each student unique.

Kids at Gateway Christian School made posters and held special activities to mark the day.
