Orange Shirt Day ~ Every Child Matters
Posted on September 27th, 2016
Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission (SJM) 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 schools happening annually.
Orange Shirt Day is an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.
Join us by wearing orange on Sept. 30! For more information and a link to the powerpoint that was shared with all students during circles on Monday, Sept. 26, please visit Mrs. Sauder's e-teacher page.
