Orange Shirt Day
Posted on September 30th, 2016
Today Alberta Education is participating in the Orange Shirt campaign, and we are too!
Today our Grade 7's joined thousands of students across the nation in the Orange Shirt Campaign. This initiative began in 2013 when Phyllis Webstad from British Columbia shared her story of having her new orange shirt taken from her, at the start of her residential school experience.
Today we grow in our understanding of residential school survivors, and proudly support reconciliation.
