Each April, Cameron Street is thrilled to lead Pink Day, a student voice project that brings together not only students from Mountain View P.S., Admiral Collingwood, Nottawa Elementary, and Connaught P.S. but community partners and the Town of Collingwood.
Unfortunately this event will be posponed for this year. See below to get an idea of what took place in 2017.

CAMERON STREET SCHOOL PLEDGE
When I see or am being bullied
I have a duty to stop, walk and talk
I will stand with and support everyone
I have a responsibility to include others
And a right to be me!
