“One Can Never Have Enough [Rainbow] Socks”

by | June 4, 2014


“One can never have enough socks,” says Professor Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore, a character in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.  

Grade 12 students at Vanier Catholic Secondary School in Whitehorse agree with Dumbledore and took his advice one step further:

More than half of the graduating students at Vanier Catholic Secondary School in Whitehorse wore rainbow socks at their cap and gown ceremony this weekend to support their school’s gay-straight alliance.

Kate Power, Liam Finnegan’s friend, was the organizer of the rainbow socks:

“She wanted to make a statement saying ‘We’re not a homophobic school’ because a lot of people have that perception, so it was a really cool experience to see that,”

Congratulations Vanier graduates!
