It has become an annual tradition to celebrate the International Day of Pink here at FHCI. Last year, our school demonstrated strong and impressive spirit at the big event. An official ceremony was held in our gymnasium and was attended by Toronto Police Services’ 53 Division, the Service’s Lesbian Gay Bisexual Trans Queer Internal Support Network and TDSB Superintendents.
Falcons were blazing every shade of pink in every shape and form – from pink balloon pillars, pink desks, pink shirts, pink headbands, pink door decorations to pink hair, FHCI staff and students communicated the important message of standing up to bullying. We were honoured to have special guest speaker Bill Blair, from the Toronto Police Services, speak about bullying, equality, and leadership. His words inspired and motivated us, Falcons, to not be bystanders and to have the courage to do what’s right. After all, our school motto is Non nobis solum, “Not for ourselves alone.”

This year, FHCI’s SuperClub Committee (Student Council, Prefects, GSA, Cookies for a Cure, Craft Club), organized by Ms. Campbell, and co-run with the help of Ms. Moroz and Ms. Chan, have worked hard to put together an exciting International Day of Pink event, which will be held on Wednesday April 13th, 2016. This year, we are asking you to take a stand against bullying and sign a pledge. Let’s all come together April 13th and help build a Pathway to Peace so that no one suffers bullying in this lifetime.
APRIL 13: Come to the foyer at the beginning of school to get Pink-i-fied! There will be facepaint, hair chalk and lots of goodies!
#FHCIDayofPink is coming…will you be ready to take a stand?
