Orange Shirt Day, Friday Oct 7th

Friday, Sept 30th, was the official Orange Shirt Day, meant to recognize the harm that was done to residential school students and to show a commitment to the principle that every child matters. As this day conflicted with the day devoted to our Terrry Fox Run, we have chosen for Friday, October 7th to be Orange Shirt Day. The idea of wearing an orange shirt originates from the story of a young girl who was told to take off her orange shirt as she entered a residential school. Please dress in orange shirts if you have them. We will be providing ribbons for anyone who doesn't have one.
