Orange Shirt Day in St. James - Assiniboia

September 30th marked an important day across our country. Schools were filled with the colour orange to show support for the survivors of Residential Schools, and for those who did not.
Schools across our division participated in a variety of ways.
George Waters Middle School and St. James Collegiate purchased orange t-shirts for all of their students and staff, and held assemblies to talk about this dark piece of Canada's history.

The conversations have also continued beyond the assembly, into their classrooms.
Here is one example:

APTN (Aboriginal People Television Network) also came to interview some students:
