Dress Purple Day on October 24th

Dress Purple Day


On Tuesday, October 24th staff and students across Ontario will dress in purple to raise awareness and show support for every child’s rights to safety and well-being. On Dress Purple Day we acknowledge the important role everybody in our community plays in keeping children safe.

Child abuse and neglect is a sad reality that impacts far too many people in our community.  One of the key goals of Dress Purple Day is to break the silence of abuse and recognize that children depend on all of us to speak up for them when they need help.

At Waterloo Region District School Board, we believe in creating a sense of belonging for students in a caring learning environment that addresses their well-being. Students are our priority and we recognize the importance of well-being in student success.

We invite you to help us break the silence and show your support on October 24th by wearing purple.
