Over the last year, the Peel District School Board has worked with its First Nation, Métis and Inuit Education Advisory Circle to review school sports team names and logos particular to Indigenous culture. The goal is to make sure sports teams–which are such an important part of school life—are truly inclusive. As a result, Chinguacousy Secondary School will be phasing out the use of its sports team name.
Change is not easy, but at Chinguacousy we are committed to inclusion for all. Together, students and staff will create a new sports team name, one that makes all students feel included and is welcoming to everyone in our community. The Peel board will cover all costs associated with this change. More information will be shared as we work through this process.
