Orange Shirt Day……
Tomorrow is Orange Shirt Day
Orange shirt day is an annual event that started in 2013 to recognize the legacy of Residential school system
for First Nations, Metis and Inuit families and communities. It is a show of support and understanding of the
history of the school system that impacts many First Nations, Metis and Inuit people today.
The phrase "Every Child Matters" reminds everyone that children are such an important and integral part of our
communities and that they are our future generations of changemakers. By wearing an orange shirt, we have an
opportunity to bring awareness to the history of residential schools and to stand up against other injustices
that may impact our children/students.
