Flying the Pride Flag at Westminster
The month of June is Pride month. At Westminster Woods, some of our students, staff, parents/guardians and community members identify as members of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. Flying the Pride flag not only signals that UGDSB schools are safe spaces for everyone, it also aligns with our Vision Statement and Guiding Principles, inclusion, student and staff well-being, and our Equity Plan.
Our school district is showing our acceptance and celebration of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community during Pride month by raising the Pride flag at schools and offices across the UGDSB. For the month of June, the Pride flag will be raised at Westminster Woods PS.
This year the flag that will be used includes half-sized stripes to represent trans, non-binary individuals, and marginalized People-of-Colour (POC) communities. We will continue to raise awareness, ensure equity, and support inclusion and acceptance of marginalized groups.
