 Pink: The Colour of Kindness

 On Pink Shirt Day at Rosary School in Manning, all students and staff placed their name in a bin, then selected a name at random. Each person then designed a pink “kindness” T-shirt for their selected person. The subject’s name went on the front and the designer’s on the back. All the shirts were then randomly posted in the hall, and each person’s mission was to find the T-shirt designed for them and personally make a connection with the designer.
