Oak Grove College are proud to be an inclusive and tolerant environment. We have adopted the practise of having LGBTU Allies who are honoured to support and respect young people’s diversity.
LGBTU Allies wear rainbow lanyards in order to: · Promote inclusion and acceptance of students that identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and all other gender identities.
· Show students who they can talk to about any LGBTU questions or worries. · Provide a clear sign that we are tolerant of all.
· Give an easy way to identify a safe staff member for students who may be teased or worse because of their physical, emotional or sexual identity.
In this way we are showing our acceptance and support and the LGBTU allies are there for all students, not only those that identify as LGBTU.
