The St. Brigid CSPC is excited to share photos from this morning’s Pride Flag raising at the school! For the first time in TCDSB history we are celebrating Pride Month – The Pride Flag is being raised at schools across Toronto to celebrate and recognize the 2SLGBTQ+ community, and to affirm that we are all loved and all belong.
Hello TCDSB Trustees,
The parent council at St. Brigid school is grateful for Trustee Kennedys support in voting in favour of the advisory committee’s recommendations regarding pride month activities, specifically:
- Board-wide recognition of Pride month
- Pride flags flying at all TCDSB schools
- Pride flags flying at the Board
The parent council at St. Brigid wanted to let you know that we support these actions emphatically.
While the actions may seem small, they in fact, have an oversized weight in demonstrating that all students in our schools are welcomed and safe. We are sure you agree with that sentiment.
We encourage you to also vote in favour of the advisory committee’s recommendations regarding pride month activities.
