This Monday, September 30th, St. Brigid School will be participating in Orange Shirt Day. Orange Shirt Day is an annual event that started in 2013 to recognize the legacy of Residential school system for First Nations, Metis and Inuit families and communities. St. Brigid School is participating in Orange Shirt Day to show support and understanding of the history of the school system that impacts many First Nations, Metis and Inuit people today.
By wearing an orange shirt on Monday, we hope to bring awareness to the history of residential schools and to stand up against other injustices that may impact our children and students.
Spirit Squad points will be awarded to students who wear orange.
