Pride flag to fly at all WRDSB locations during June

During the month of June, all Waterloo Region District School Board locations will fly the Pride flag alongside the Canadian flag. The month of June is Pride month. Many of our students, parents/caregivers and community members identify as members of the Rainbow (or LGBTQ+) community.

We’re joined by more than 200 #WRDSB staff and students at this year’s #GSAconference at @bingemans. It’s been an incredible honour to partner with @kwcounselling for 7 years for a day of learning, growth and acceptance. #OK2BME2017 #lgbtq #OK2BME #prideineducation
