Unfortunately, the WRCPC will not be initiating the Say Hi Day campaign in the schools in 2017 but we would like to encourage the schools to use the resources below to celebrate the day.

Say Hi Day

We have been celebrating Say Hi Day in schools across Waterloo Region since 2007.  Students from JK to Grade 12 are encouraged to say hi to each other and participate in a variety of activities on this day as a way to promote belonging, inclusion, respect, and kindness.

Why Say Hi?

“Say Hi Day has had a positive impact on our school and builds an inclusive community for our students.”

Students will get to know each other, feel connected to their school and as a result create a safer school community.

The Say Hi School campaign is designed to promote safety & inclusion within the school community. The WRCPC does not promote or endorse students speaking to strangers outside of the school. This is intended to be a campaign within the school only.
