June is Pride Month in Ontario


During the month of June, the rainbow flag will fly at all elementary and secondary schools and at the Catholic Education Centre, symbolizing St. Clair Catholic's welcoming and inclusive school communities. June is designated as PRIDE Month in communities across Ontario. During this month, and every month of the year, our schools are committed to creating inclusive Catholic learning environments where every student and community member is welcomed, safe, valued and respected.

As Catholics, we believe that everyone is beautifully made in the image and likeness of God, who created us and loves us unconditionally. We are called to love one another as God loves each of us. At St. Clair Catholic, we work to end all forms of bullying and discrimination by honoring the inherent dignity of each of us by treating one another with care, compassion, and respect.

As a Catholic school system, we continue to teach religious education through the Completely alive And Growing in faith, growing in Christ Programs approved and supported by the Assembly of Catholic Bishops of Ontario.

The Church recognizes and defends the human rights of every person. These principles are enshrined in law in the Ontario Human Rights Code. As educators and caring adults, we have a duty to protect and accompany every student, especially the most marginalized.
