Sept 30 – Orange Shirt Day

Orange Shirt Day is a day when we honour the Indigenous children who were sent away to residential schools in Canada and to learn more about the history of those schools.

Wearing an orange shirt and promoting the slogan, Every Child Matters, is an affirmation of our commitment to raise awareness of the residential school experience and to ensure that every child matters as we focus on our hope for a better future in which children are empowered to help each other.
Check with your teachers about resources to learn more.
