It was a party atmosphere and, hopefully, other students will want to participate in the next Inside Ride. Special thanks to Mrs. Launderville's period 1 class for preparing the snacks, Mrs. Nickerson for buying the water, Ms. Penson and Ms. Reynolds for two great posters, and everyone who donated and supported the event.
You can still donate online at www.trentonhs.theinsideride.com until the end of the school year. For more pictures, see our Galleries.
Wednesday, April 8th was Anti-Hate / Pink Shirt Day in the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board. Pictured above are some of the hundreds of Trenton High School students who wore pink to school to show their support.
Pink Shirt Day originated in 2007 when two students in Nova Scotia stood up to bullies who were picking on a grade 9 boy for wearing a pink shirt to school. David Shepherd and Travis Price were in grade 12 when they started the largest anti-bullying movement in the world. Last November, Trenton High School was lucky enough to have Travis Price speak to the student body about his experiences and how to be proactive in the fight against bullying.
THS Social Justice Committee started organizing Pink Shirt Day for the Hastings Board in 2009. In its first year, just 80 shirts were sold, all at THS. Now, all eight of the secondary schools, and many of the elementary schools in the board, are involved. Approximately 3500 shirts were sold this year. The movement has grown exponentially, with the hope that it continues to do so for years to come!
Thank you to the Trenton community for supporting our Soup's On fundraiser in support of the Trenton Food Bank and THS Food for Learning. We enjoyed a choice of five delicious soups and each took home a ceramic bowl made by THS students and staff. Spring was definitely in the air on this festive evening. A total of $728 was raised.
