On Monday, September 30th our staff and students join others across Canada by wearing orange to recognize Indigenous reconciliation.
It's Orange Shirt Day! On Monday, September 30th our staff and students are wearing orange in recognition of Indigenous students that were taken from their families to residential schools. It is a symbol of acknowledgement and reconciliation. Today we'll be talking in our classrooms about what reconciliation means and why it's important.
Our orange shirts were designed by William Good, a Coast Salish artist who is also an NCS grandparent. We're blessed that he and his family are part of our NCS community!
