Over the month of February, and throughout the year, CKNW Kids' Fund's Pink Shirt Day aims to raise awareness of these issues, as well as raise funds to support programs that foster children’s healthy self-esteem. Handsworth staff and students are encouraged to WEAR PINK on Wed Feb 27th - a shirt, socks, a tie, a scarf or anything to show that the Handsworth community is committed to kindness! On February 27, 2019, we encourage everyone to practice kindness and wear pink to symbolize that you do not tolerate bullying.
