Recognizing International Transgender Day of Remembrance

The Waterloo Region District School Board would like to extend support to our transgender students, parents/families, and staff in honour of International Transgender Day of Remembrance and Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week. We are committed to providing safe, inclusive and caring learning environments for each and every one of our students.

Our incredible staff work hard every day to ensure that the lived experiences, identities, and diversity of our students is recognized, validated, and celebrated. Our community is encouraged to join us in sending a message of support to the transgender community by using the hashtag #WRDSBpride.

Interested in learning more about how we accommodate our students that identify as transgender?

Meet Alex, Rory, Clara and Pipi, four of our students who identify as transgender. This video helps us understand their journey and experiences as young trans people with their families and how our schools play a major role in making them feel safe and welcome.
