St. Paul Education Recognizes Orange Shirt 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. Wearing an orange shirt is meant to recognize the harm done to residential school students, and a date in September was chosen because it is the time of year when children were taken from their homes to residential schools.


Orange Shirt Activities will happen throughout our Division this week and next as we show a commitment to the principle that every child matters and set the stage for anti-racism and anti-bullying policies for the coming school year.
