PINK SHIRT DAY
Today is Pink Shirt Day! Pink Shirt Day began in 2007 when two Nova Scotian seniors, David Shepard and Travis Price, noticed a grade 9 being picked on for wearing pink. By encouraging others to wear pink shirts, they advocated for anti-bullying and inclusivity. Today, we continue to promote many of the same values that we have at Westlane but in the fashion of wearing a pink shirt.

STUDENT COUNCIL
Did you know that in 2017-18, 1 in 8 households in Canada was food insecure? COVID-19 has increased this number which is why Westlane is going to be doing a school-wide March long competition on FreeRice. FreeRice is an app where you answer trivia questions and for every trivia question you get right, you donate 1 gram of rice to help feed the hungry. There is also a leaderboard and whoever wins first place by the end of March will win a $50 Spartan spirit wear gift card! The competition will start March 1st but in the meantime, download the FreeRice app on your phone or go to freerice.com to create an account!
