Orange Shirt Day will be happening at Glenwood tomorrow, Wednesday, September 29th. 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.
Please note school will be closed on Thursday, September 30th for National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
