Orange Shirt Day

Posted: October 4, 2017

On Friday, September 29th L.E.R. students and staff showed their commitment to reconciliation by participating in planned activities, which sparked important conversations about Indian Residential Schools. The annual Orange Shirt Day is hosted across the country on September 30th. Orange Shirt Day opens the door to global conversation on all aspects of Residential Schools. It is an opportunity to create meaningful discussion about the effects of Residential Schools and the legacy they have left behind. A discussion all Canadians can tune into to begin the process of reconciliation and healing. It is a day for survivors to be reaffirmed that they matter, and so do those that have been affected. Here are a few pictures from the kindergarten and grade one Residential School activities.
