The Rainbow Pride Flag Raising – June 4th

The Rainbow Pride flag is raised at GCVI in order to recognize the diversity of our gender and sexual minorities. We celebrate Pride month, in June, as a symbolic gesture to take action against the realities of oppression that gender and sexual minorities continue to face. GCVI has a welcoming school community that believes in the inclusivity and acceptance of all groups.

We believe in equality and do all that we can to ensure that all of our staff, students, and community members are treated with dignity and respect. As a school we work hard to celebrate others’ differences and to abolish discrimination.

All of the Gaels are respected and valued and in such we will take the month of June to proudly raise and fly the Rainbow Pride Flag.
