Pink Shirt Day was hard to miss in Central Otago.

The national day, celebrated last Friday, encourages people to “speak up, stand together and stop bullying”, all while wearing pink.

Schools throughout the district got behind the movement, led locally by Sticks ‘n’ Stones ambassadors.

Participating schools shared some of their photos from the day with The News.
