June is designated as Pride Month in Canada, and throughout the month, our HCDSB schools will be raising awareness around Pride Month and nurturing our call to build safe and inclusive learning environments where every student and every member of the community is welcomed, valued, and respected.
This June, and each day of every month, our Catholic schools are committed to nurturing safe, welcoming and inclusive schools where all students can feel a true sense of belonging.
What’s Happening Across Our Board
Rainbow Day 🌈 ~ Wednesday, June 1st
We will launch Pride Month at HCDSB with a system-wide Rainbow Day on Wednesday, June 1st – a day to love and celebrate one another, just as God loves and celebrates each one of us because we are all wonderfully made.
In keeping with the Board motion passed on January 18th, 2022, the Pride Flag will be raised at each school and the Catholic Education Centre. The flag will be flown throughout the month of June.
Pride Awareness Day 🏳️🌈 ~ Tuesday, June 14th
On Tuesday, June 14th, we will hold a system-wide Pride Awareness Day – a day to reaffirm our commitment to honour the dignity and worth of each member of our community by nurturing safe, welcoming and inclusive schools.
There are a number of learning activities and events planned across our district throughout the month of June.
The information shared with students will be age-appropriate and consistent with grade-level curriculum expectations. As with all material that is taught in our Catholic schools, it will be presented through the lens of our Catholic faith. Click here to review the student learning goals by division.
