DAY OF PINK AT PIERRE ELLIOTT TRUDEAU

MONTREAL, APRIL 11, 2016  – The Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) Day of Pink is set to come to Pierre Elliott Trudeau Elementary School (6855 Cartier) in Rosemont on  Wednesday,  April 13, bringing students a bevy of anti-bullying activities. 

Students will have the opportunity to participate in the following four activities:

  • Anti-Bullying Bodies Craft: Each student will receive a cut out pink body craft with a pink t-shirt.  In the centre of the t-shirt they will write a kind word. All of these will be displayed, linking hands, in the front entrance of the school.
  • Reading of "One" by Kathryn Otoshi: Each teacher will receive the compelling book called "One." The motto of the book is "it only takes one" to stand up against bullying.
  • Puzzle Piece Pledge: Each class will receive a poster in the form of a puzzle piece. In the centre of the poster lies a crumpled heart that signifies the irreversible damage caused by hurtful words. Following the reading of the storybook "One" in class, students will sign their names around the heart as a pledge against bullying. These puzzle pieces will be assembled and displayed in the front entrance of the school.
  • Tie-Dye t-shirt: Each student will receive a tie-dye pink t-shirt that they will wear for the whole day.  

A number of prizes have also been donated by RBC. All students will be entered into a raffle for the chance to win.
