Orange Shirt Day and Truth & Reconciliation Week
September 29, 2021, we marked Orange Shirt Day at our school in honour of the victims of Indian Residential Schools in Canada, as well as to continue to bring awareness to the residential school experience, to witness and honour the healing journey of the survivors and their families, and to commit to continued education and the ongoing process of reconciliation.

All classes studied and learned about Truth & Reconciliation all week, and our Grade 7 students led a school assembly to start off the day Wednesday. You can watch our assembly here: Orange Shirt Day 2021 Assembly. We also ended the day by marking one minute of silence and in prayer.
