In honor of Orange Shirt Day, on September 29 th , Broadview students learned about the importance of reconciliation and recognizing the impacts of Canada's Residential School System.
Orange shirt day has become a national movement to recognize the experience of survivors of residential schools, to honor them, and to show a collective commitment to ensure that every child matters. The initiative calls for every Canadian to wear an orange shirt on September 30 in the spirit of healing and reconciliation.
Every student from Broadview School had the opportunity to participate in the celebration by coloring their own orange shirt, with the words "Every Child Matters" written in bold lettering. We then gathered all of the decorated shirts together and formed a large orange shirt that is displayed in the hallway of our school for everyone to enjoy and reflect on the meaning behind Orange Shirt Day.
