On September 28th, our school will be recognizing Orange Shirt Day to acknowledge the harm that Canada’s residential schools caused.  Orange Shirt Day was organized by Phyllis Webstad who is a residential school survivor.  

“Phyllis Webstad was six-years-old when the new orange shirt she excitedly chose for her first day of school was stripped off her back. She never saw it again.

It was the early ’70s and Webstad was the third generation of her family to attend St. Joseph’s Residential School in Williams Lake, B.C. Most people knew it as The Mission.

She was a kid. She didn’t know that merely being born an indigenous child surrendered her to an education system designed to break down her identity. It took Webstad 40 years to find a way to re-frame her experience to fight racism and bullying under the motto “every child matters” — and by using orange..”  (Huffington Post.ca)
