An Ottawa Catholic School Finally Allows A Class Project On Gay Rights

Written by 



After having initially considered the school project on gay rights of two students as inappropriate, a Canadian Catholic school finally decided not to ban it.

Quinn Maloney-Tavares and Polly Hamilton, both aged 11 years old, had decided that their project was to include the rights of homosexuals.

The director has initially banned this project because she found that the children in the class were too young but finally, the school reversed its decision after discussions with parents and officials from the school board. Gthe two girls and some of their classmates had also protested by painting rainbow flags on their hands.

A school spokesman said that “the girls will be welcome to present their project at the social justice fair.”

Usually schools, including Catholic schools, ban without returning to the subject. There, it is good to see that school officials have taken the time to discuss and realize that there is nothing shocking to talk about gay rights, even when you are only 11 years old.
