PIC: This Irish School Poster Brilliantly Explains "Different Families"
A poster demonstrating "different families" has been sent out to Irish schools this week.
The poster, which was commissioned and distributed by Irish primary teachers’ union INTO, aims to help children understand and celebrate diverse family units, following the successful passing of the same-sex marriage referendum earlier this year.
The image, titled "Different Families, Same Love" depicts various family units, such as those with same-sex parents, single parents, mixed-race families and childless couples.
Launching the poster, Education Minister Jan O’Sullivan said: "This practical resource will be invaluable to teachers in creating inclusive classrooms. It will also aid in successfully implementing the compulsory Anti-Bullying Procedures.
"These procedures require every school in the country to engage in preventative and educational strategies to tackle homophobic and transphobic bullying.
"This poster will contribute to the work that primary schools are already doing in this regard and furthermore sends out a clear message to the LGBT children and LGBT-headed families of our society that they are welcome and cherished in our schools."
