The Orange Shirt Day campaign -Every Child Matters (September 30 nationally) - recalls the experiences of former students of residential schools and is a commitment to ongoing reconciliation in Canada.
Originating in British Columbia, 2018 marks the fifth year of the campaign. September 30 is considered important in the residential school experiences of First Nation, Métis and Inuit people as this was the date when students would be removed from their homes to attend residential schools.
This year, September 30 falls on a Sunday, and Admiral has their School Photo Day on October 1st, so we will recognize Orange Shirt Day on Friday September 28th.
