Orange Shirt Day
September 30th is Orange Shirt Day. It began in 2013, and is a nationally recognised event. It is a day to remember the Indigenous children who were sent away to residential schools, acknowledge the continued intergenerational trauma caused by these schools, promote historical awareness, and engage in reconciliation. As educators, we will use this day as an opportunity to focus on important age-appropriate discussions in our classrooms about residential schools and other structures of systemic racism in our country and world.
