Supporting Students of all Sexual Orientations and Gender Identities

St. George's School aims to provide a safe and inclusive community for students of all sexual orientations and gender identities.

Goals for SOGI Inclusive Education:

  1. Visibility: The diversity of sexual orientations, gender identities, and expressions are recognized and valued.  
  2. Protection: The dignity of all people across the sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) spectra is intended to be preserved, as well as protected from harm.
  3. Inclusion: Equitable treatment and inclusion are a reality for people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and expressions.
With higher levels of discrimination and bullying, and lower level of family, school, and community support, LGBTQ youth face higher risks for significant health challenges, including suicidal thoughts and attempts, and problem substance use. However, when LGBTQ youth experience safe and supportive schools and families, they are much less likely to report these health challenges.” – Saewyc et al. (2016) 

St. George’s School acknowledges that we are situated on the unceded traditional territory of the Musqueam First Nation.
