Sept. 30th - Orange Shirt Day: Every Child Matters
Show your support and Wear Orange on Sept. 30th! The Orange Shirt Campaign – Every Child Matters, remembers the experiences of former students of Indian Residential Schools and is a commitment to ongoing reconciliation in Canada. Originating in British Columbia. The date was chosen because it is the time of year in which children were taken from their homes to residential schools. Orange Shirt Day is also an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come. Victoria School students and staff are invited to wear orange shirts this Friday to show our support that every child matters!
