Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission (SJM) residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake, BC, Canada, in the spring of 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, and it has become an opportunity to
keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools happening annually.
Our division will recognize Orange Shirt Day on Wednesday, September 30th.
Order forms have been sent home and are due Friday, Sept 11.
