Students from North Nova Education Centre (NNEC) celebrated their third annual Pride Week recently, with events taking place daily at the New Glasgow-based school.

Activities included a wall mural with hand prints from NNEC’s student body, a rainbow face painting day, rainbow sucker day, and a bake sale in support of the school’s Gender-Sexuality Alliance.

“All the activities were geared toward furthering awareness about our Gender-Sexuality Alliance at NNEC,” said Kathy Robertson, Youth Health Centre Coordinator, NNEC.

Students, teachers and staff also used Pride Week to raise money for a Gender-Sexuality Alliance bursary, which will be awarded to a graduating student from the school who is a member of the LGBTIQ community.

NNEC celebrated Pride Week from May 29 to June 2.
