Promoting Positive Behaviours in Children Course

Orange Shirt Day - September 28

Orange Shirt Day is coming up and has been established in order to acknowledge and remember children who attended Residential Schools in Canada. These schools were in operation between 1870 and 1996. Some children who attended Residential Schools survived; however many did not. Orange shirts have become a symbol for the day because of the story of Residential School Survivor Phyllis Webstad (link below). Orange Shirt Day takes place on September 30th each year. This year it falls on a Sunday. For this reason we have decided to honor the day of Friday September 28th.

 

Phyllis’ Story can be found here http://www.orangeshirtday.org/phyllis-story.html. It helps to explain the background and origin of the day.
