Bert Ambrose staff and students celebrated Pink Shirt Day on Feb. 24. We took part in zoom sessions with motivational speaker, Michael Bortolotto, and discussions were had around preventing bullying and social inclusion. It was wonderful to see so many students wearing pink in support of this important event.
Thank you, PAC, for this nice surprise!
