Language learners learn about Pink Shirt Day

February 7, 2019

Bullying is a major problem in our schools, workplaces, homes, and over the Internet. Pink Shirt Day helps raise awareness on these issues and provides funding to amazing anti-bullying initiatives that provide the tools needed to stand up against bullies and step in when we see it happening.

This year, more than 1000 MOSAIC LINC learners are learning all about Pink Shirt Day in their online classrooms. Additionally, the MOSAIC Wellness Committee has bought pink t-shirts and pink accessories for MOSAIC employees.

MOSAIC Language Programs makes the most of our e-learning platform. English learners see their teacher and classmates both online and in person. Online classrooms include more than lessons; clients access extra settlement information and content about significant cultural and workplace events. Our clients enjoy expressing opinions and teachers love to observe them trying out new language.

“It was nearly a decade ago at Central Kings Rural High School in Cambridge, Nova Scotia when grade 12 students Travis Price and David Sheppard caught wind of a grade 9 student being bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school. Instead of standing idly by and watching it happen, they decided to step up and do something about it. Their act of standing up to bullying has grown into a worldwide movement called Pink Shirt Day.” Click here to Learn more.
