Day of Pink at Gledhill

The entrepreneurial spirit and poster making game was strong  in the halls at Gledhill this morning – all in the name of the Day of Pink.

 

Today – Wed, April 10th, is the Day of Pink

“The Day of Pink is the International Day against Bullying, Discrimination, Homophobia, Transphobia, and Transmisogyny across the world. We invite everyone to celebrate diversity by wearing a pink shirt and by organizing activities in their workplaces, schools and communities.”

Gledhill is celebrating this day in several ways:

  • Students are encouraged to wear PINK today
  • The Grade 4s and 5 have been busy baking and will be selling their treats in the hallways before lunch today to students Grade 1 and older. All proceeds from the sale will go to www.dayofpink.org. Items will range in price from $0.25 – $1.00.
  • Grades 4 and 5 students will host “Kindie Buddy chats” with the kindergarten students to talk about friendship and kindness.

New Gym Mats and Gymnastics Equipment

The next time you’re in the gym you’ll see the walls have some amazing new mats, and students will have use of new gymnastics equipment.

Thanks to your support and participation in activities such as Marlies, Silent Auction, Dance-A-Thon and Family Fest the Gledhill School Council was proud to support Mr. Webb and the Physical Education team with the purchase of new mats and gymnastics equipment. This new equipment puts the school a step ahead and provides children with more age appropriate and safe activities in their physical education classes.

  3. Hi, we’re from the Eco-Club!  We were noticing a fair number of reusable containers get left in the playground by kids.  Often they end up broken or put in the garbage.  Students, please make sure that when the recess bell rings to come in, you check to make sure you have everything you brought out with you.  It’s a good idea to put your things in the same place while you’re playing.  Thanks for thinking of the earth!
