Pride Month

According to School Mental Health Ontario, our identity is not just a part of us, it's a key factor in how we feel. When our identity is not just acknowledged, but celebrated and affirmed, it can be a powerful source of hope, purpose, belonging, and meaning, leading to a stronger sense of positive mental health, well-being, and connection.


In DBS1, we celebrate having pride in who we are, today and every day! As just one example, students participate in an identity square activity, proudly filling their shape with aspects that represent them and everything that brings them pride in who they are.
