Respect. Compassion. Kindness. Love. Couldn’t the world use a bit more of these things? Today we celebrate Pink Shirt Day, 24 hours devoted to raising awareness of bullying in schools, workplaces, homes and on the Internet.

Show that bullying will not be tolerated in our community by wearing pink today. And if you see or experience bullying behaviour, speak up for yourself and others!

If you’re experiencing bullying or struggling with a conflict, there is support on campus. Counselling Services offers free, confidential counselling for students enrolled at Cap. Plus, Cap’s Conflict Resolution Advisor helps students and employees to resolve issues. Don’t hesitate to make use of these free services!

Join us for a Paint In!

The Early Childhood Care and Education student club and Capilano University Children’s Centre invite you to a “Paint In” outside the Cedar building at 10 a.m. today! What’s a Paint In? Event organizer and early childhood educator Maureen Black says: “It’s about opening up a dialogue. People tend to glaze over when they hear the word bullying. Our theme is acceptance. It’s about coming together to paint and to accept everyone for who they are.” Everyone is welcome to join in the fun!
