Orange Shirt Day will be happening at Glenwood on Wednesday, September 28th. Orange Shirt Day is a movement that has grown from an Indigenous student’s account of having her brand new orange shirt taken away from her on her first day of school. Wearing an orange shirt is meant to recognize the harm done to residential school students, and show a commitment to the principle that Every Child Matters. We are encouraging all students and staff to wear an orange shirt as this is an opportunity for everyone to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.
We also would like to invite you to join us on Monday, September 26th at 9:15am in the school gym for an Indigenous dance performance. Following the performance students will be participating in an Indigenous dance workshop for the remaining part of the day with their class.
Please note school will be closed on Thursday, September 29th and Friday, September 30th as the 29th is as professional development day and the 30th is National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
