Friday, September 28th is ORANGE SHIRT DAY!
Orange Shirt Day, in recognition of the harm the residential school system did to children's sense of self-esteem and wellbeing, and as an affirmation of our commitment to ensure that everyone around us matters.
Wearing an orange shirt is a way to honour the survivors and remember those that did not survive. Orange Shirt Day is also 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.
Starting at 10am, Metepenagiag School will be honouring the survivors and remember those that did not survive with a ceremony followed by a community Turkey Dinner feast.
** Sunday September 30th is the official Orange Shirt Day however the school is closed, thus we will recognize it on Friday.
