Orange Shirt Day

On Wednesday, September 30th, we come together in the spirit of reconciliation and wear orange shirts to remember the harm residential schools caused the Indigenous community. The color orange symbolizes a brighter future; free of violence. This recognition aligns with and supports our Blueprint for the Future 5.2 to support our First Nations, Métis and Inuit students’ success. Students and staff across the division are participating in activities that help to build awareness and acknowledgement that every child matters. To learn more about Orange Shirt Day go to
