In honour of the Halton Catholic District School Board’s commitment to Truth and Reconciliation, Orange Shirt Day will be acknowledged on September 30, 2020. Orange shirt day is an annual event that started in 2013 to recognize the legacy of Residential school system for First Nations, Metis and Inuit families and communities. It is a show of support and understanding of the history of the school system that impacts many First Nations, Metis and Inuit people today.
If possible, students are encouraged to wear orange articles of clothing on this day. This is not a spirit day – students can wear orange as a sign of support for First Nations, Metis and Inuit people.
