What is Orange Shirt Day?
September 30th has been declared Orange Shirt Day in recognition of the harm the residential school system did to children’s sense of self-esteem and well being, and as an affirmation of our commitment to ensure that everyone around us matters!
We would like to encourage everyone to honour this day by wearing Orange Shirts on September 30th to acknowledge the history of Residential Schools in Canada and the ongoing process of reconciliation. We would also like to invite all staff and students to contribute your thoughts on our display board this Wednesday of ways we show pride in who we are and how we as all Nations and surrounding communities can continue to move forward.
The display board will be placed near the main entrance of the school. The First Nations Leadership class will be standing at the display board during the first break and lunch on September 30th.
