Policy

Given that Canada is a multicultural and democratic nation identified by its national anthem and flag, the Board believes that patriotic exercises and the cultivation of patriotic sentiment contributes to a climate of mutual respect and trust conducive to student learning, personal development, social living and citizenship within a Canadian context. All Edmonton Public Schools shall display the Canadian flag and are expected to play or conduct regular singing of the national anthem.
