Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission (SJM) residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake, BC, Canada in 2013. It grew out of Phyllis’ story of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission. It has become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential school happening annually.
Our school division will recognize Orange Shirt Day on Friday, September 29th, 2023.
Each shirt is $14.00 for youth & adults. $1.00 from every shirt purchased will go towards an Indigenous Education Services Student Scholarship.
Payment can be made online via Visa, Visa Debit, MasterCard or Debit MasterCard or with EXACT cash at the school office. Please note, we are unable to accept cheques for payment. Orders are open until September 17th until 11:59 pm.
