NCS recognizes Pink Shirt Day with Bible verses, games, donuts and dinos

Students are reminded that the second commandment Jesus gives is to "love your neighbour as yourself" (Matthew 22:39).

On February 28 Nanaimo Christian School joined the global Pink Shirt Day movement and students had great discussions about bullying and being kind.

In grades 1-5 we had a Pink Shirt Day chapel where we were reminded that the second commandment that Jesus gives is that we "love your neighbour as yourself" (Matthew 22:39). Some of our grade 5s shared skits that they created to illustrate unkind situations we may encounter at school and how we can respond with kindness instead. After the time together in the gym, classes returned to their homerooms, read about and discussed bullying and kindness, and designed pink shirts.

In middle school we had chapel that focused on being kind and challenged students in a compliment battle. They had a devotion where they discussed the power of words and how "teasing" or "joking" can still be hurtful. We connected the 2023-24 school year theme "Speak Life" with how we can use our words to help and lift up others rather than tear them down.

In high school chapel students played games to celebrate our community and worked together on some collaborative competition. A teacher spoke about her personal bullying experience and then discussed what the Bible says about it: We are to love our neighbours and to live in the knowledge that we are all made in the image of Christ and exactly who we were meant to be. We ended with our fun new Pink Shirt Day t-shirts “Donut be a bully” (donut) and “Make bullying extinct” (dinosaur), had a visit from a T-Rex character, and ate some Timbits.
