Orange Shirt Day

Sep 30, 2019 All Day
Orange Shirt Day is 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. At St. Pius, we recognize Orange Shirt Day as a day to acknowledge the importance of learning about the history and impact of residential schools and to honour residential school survivors. Orange Shirt Day originated from a campaign started by Phyllis Webstad a residential school survivor who tells her story of her shiny new orange shirt that was taken away on her first day of residential school. Staff, students, and parents are invited to wear an orange shirt on September 30.
