Flags at all Waterloo Catholic District School Board schools and administrative sites have been flying at half-mast since May 31st, as a sign of respect for the 215 children and youth whose graves were recently discovered on the grounds of a former residential school in British Columbia.

To mark the tragic anti Muslim murders this week in London, Ontario, and to stand in solidarity with our Muslim brothers and sisters, all WCDSB flags will remain at half mast until the end of school day on June 11.

As a Catholic community we pray for the victims of this senseless act and join as one to condemn racism, bigotry and hate, in all its forms anywhere.
