Orange Shirt Day Tomorrow

Orange Shirt Day this Friday

Tomorrow is Orange Shirt Day at St. Augustine School. Lets see if we can get more than half our school wearing orange!

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 change makers.  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.
