Message from the Principal (February)

From the Principal

February - the shortest month of the year is here. It is also the month when we can start to see the sunlight during the days. 

Last week F-3 had a big party celebrating that they are one hundred days smarter! It doesn't sound much, but imagine what you learn in a hundred days when you are a kid.

This week is Pride Week and this week is important because we need to change the norm. When we talk about Pride, not all know what it stands for. In schools we usually say that pride stands for professionalism, respect, integrity, diversity and excellence. 






In the original eight-color version, pink stood for sexuality, red for life, orange for healing, yellow for the sun, green for nature, turquoise for art, indigo for harmony and violet for the soul.  

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Q is for Queer, I is for Intersex, A is asexual.

Sometimes you can also see other variants with  "U" for "unsure",  "C" for "curious"; another "T" for "transvestite", "TS", or "2" for "two-spirit" persons; or an "SA" for "straight allies".

Happy Pride everyone!
