There’s a certain colour you’ll want to wear to school today.

It’s Pink Shirt Day for schools in Nova Scotia.

It started in 2007, when a Valley boy in Grade 9 wore a pink shirt to school and was bullied.

A group of students then showed up wearing pink and organized a protest.

The movement inspired numerous anti-bullying campaigns.

There is now a national Pink Shirt Day in February.
