Celebrating Pride: Message from the Chair and Director of the UGDSB

Posted May 30, 2023

This week, the Upper Grand District School Board and our schools across the region are kicking off Pride Month. During the month of June and throughout the year, the UGDSB supports 2SLGBTQIA+ staff, students and their families by celebrating the joy of identity and centering 2SLGBTQIA+ histories, contributions and excellence. We are committed to this work and supporting the 2SLGBTQIA+ community in all of our schools, offices and school communities.

UGDSB schools are hosting a variety of Pride events and celebrations, including flag raising ceremonies.  Pride flags will be flown at all UGDSB school and board sites throughout June.

As a public school district, we are dedicated to building understanding, safety, inclusion and joy of 2SLGBTQIA+ identity into all of our school and work communities as part of our commitment to disrupting systemic oppression and hate in all its forms.

Wishing you all a wonderful Pride.



Ralf Mesenbrink
Chair of the Board

Peter Sovran
Director of Education
