AVONMORE, Ontario — Delaney Bus Lines employees wore pink T-shirts on Feb. 23 in support of the Boys and Girls Club of Cornwall/SDG’s 2011 Pink Shirt Day, according to a story in the latest edition of OSBA News from the Ontario School Bus Association.

The pink theme originated from an incident several years ago when two Nova Scotia high school students organized a protest to show support for a ninth-grade boy who had been bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school.

Mark Begg, manager for Delaney Bus Lines, said he was extremely proud of his team for taking part in the annual, nationwide event. “We are only a small part of a student’s school day; however, we are committed to keeping our school buses bully-free zones,” he said.

In addition to this awareness campaign, Begg said that school bus drivers also get to participate in such workshops as “Growing Respect on Your School Bus” and “Building Positive Student Behavior on Your School Bus” throughout the school year.
