Orange Shirt Day Assembly- 10:00am Monday, Sept. 30th

Orange Shirt Day is on Monday September 30th. We would like to invite you to our assembly at 11am to honour this day.

Orannge Shirt Day is a day to honour and remember those who survived and those who were lost in the Residential Schools of Canada. It is an opportunity to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come. This day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake, BC, Canada, in the spring of 2013. It grew out of Phyllis’ story of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission, and it has become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential school happening annually. Teachers throughout the school will be engaging their students in a range of learning activities during the week running up to Monday September 30th, developing empathy, compassion, knowledge and awareness.

We invite everyone to wear an orange shirt on Monday September 30th and to explain to those around you why you are doing so.
