Orange Shirt Day

Orange Shirt Day

 

On September 27 from 8:30 - 3:30 we will have a display set up in the commons area (by the gym) that shares information on the meaning of Orange Shirt Day. There will be videos on a loop for the full day.  At this time students can also purchase shirts. Some shirts will be $10 and others will be $2.  We then will wear our orange shirts on Sept 30.  * Should your students not purchase a shirt, that is fine, but encourage them to wear an orange shirt on Monday, Sept 30th .  Below is a news insert. Please share with your parents via email. Thank you,

(Children Are Sacred)

Children of residential schools are honoured annually on Orange Shirt Day. The campaign’sslogan - Every Child Matters - loosely translates to Kiceyitakosiwak Awasisak in Cree,which means Children Are Sacred.

As part of First Nations culture, childhood is the foundation of our journey through life. Building a strong foundation is vital to the development of the person they will become.The translation of Children Are Sacred honours the Cree holistic value that everything in life is sacred.

Orange Shirt Day began to help spread awareness for children who attended residential schools. The orange shirt symbolizes these children having their identities stripped away. LPSD schools will be celebrating the culture and honouring the history through featuring
displays that will include images and videos of the Orange Shirt Day campaign and Residential Schools starting the week of Sept. 23.

To reinforce that Every Child Matters, students can purchase their own orange shirtfrom their local school starting the week of Sept. 23. Students will be asked to wear their shirts on Monday, September 30th.
