Happy Rainbow Week! Did you know that same sex marriage in Canada was only legalized in 2005? That’s less than 20 years ago! This week the rainbow pride flag will be flying at Colquitz to celebrate the diversity that LGBTQ+ students and staff bring to our school. The Rainbow Club will play songs by LGBTQ+ artists at the end of every day and we invite everyone to wear rainbow colours on Thursday, May 16!
