The resources below offer advice and support to both individuals and their loved ones:

June 2021 PRIDE Initiative - #Pride365NL
The District is challenging all schools to 'Show Your True Colours' for the next 365 days! Schools and GSAs are encouraged to hold some form of learning or fun-filled initiative once a month, every month starting now and throughout the upcoming school year. We recognize that July and August are missing from our school calendars, so we encourage you to 'double up' in June and September, to help ensure students feel recognized and supported, particularly as they begin and end their school years.

Check out this #Pride365NL resource for suggestions and ideas. (Please note, students and staff may need to be logged into the Google accounts in order to access some resources).

Please see the following resources developed for Newfoundland and Labrador schools as part of planned outreach as part of the "Free to be Me" Conferences throughout our schools
