Every Child Matters

Orange Shirt Day: Tuesday, October 2, 2018

Staff and students are encouraged to wear orange t-shirts on this day to show support for Canada’s Residential School survivors and to bring attention to the other injustices facing Indigenous children today. The idea of wearing orange t-shirts was inspired by residential school survivor, Phyllis Webstad’s, story. On her first day of school, she excitedly wore her brand new orange shirt, only to have it taken away and replaced with an institutional uniform. The orange shirt represents her loss of identity and culture at the residential school. “The colour orange has always reminded me of how my feelings didn’t matter, how no one cared and how I felt like I was worth nothing,” Phyllis says of her experience at the school.

In response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commissions’ 94 Calls to Action, our school is committed to bringing awareness to the residential school experience and gain the participation of the greater community in delivering the message that Every Child Matters. You can show your support by encouraging your child to wear an orange shirt on Tuesday, October 2, 2018.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school at 705-264-9438.
