SD57 Indigenous Education & Orange Shirt Day

Wednesday September 30 is Orange Shirt Day – show your support!

It is held annually on September 30 in Canadian communities with students and staff being encouraged to wear an orange shirt to school that day. Orange Shirt Day began in 2013 as a result of residential school survivor Phyllis Jack Webstad discussing her experience when she arrived at a residential school.

Students brought home a letter and pamphlet outlining SD57 Indigenous Education Department and programs for 2020/21 school year.

More information is found on the website here. Contact Pam Spooner or any of the other staff to find out more.

Also contact Jennifer Pighin if you are interested in being a Parent Representative on the Advisory Committee this year.
