The Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) at Gros Morne Academy held a Rainbow Day in early December where staff and all students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 wore a color of the rainbow. The day was an effort to show acceptance and equality for all individuals.
Throughout the day, grades 7 to 12 teachers delivered a lesson around respect and acceptance for LGBTQ. For students in Kindergarten to Grade 6, teachers focused on discussing respecting each other's differences, as well as different types of families. As a follow-up and to continue the important conversation about respect, grades 7 to 12 students also received a presentation from The Get REAL Group Inc. once they returned to school after the New Years' break. Get REAL is an inclusivity workshop at the middle and high school levels, with a focus on eliminating LGBTQ discrimination and bullying. Thank you to all our colourful students for your attention and respect!
