Orange Shirt Day 2020

orange shirt day logo.pngOrange Shirt Day 2020 is Wednesday, September 30th. It's a national day of recognition that honours the legacy of Residential School survivors and those who did not make it home.

Students and staff throughout the GECDSB will commemorate the day by wearing orange shirts and gaining knowledge and understanding about this part of Canadian history. It is through education that we can build mutual respect, reciprocity and truth in our classrooms and communities.

GECDSB teachers have been provided with a comprehensive collection of resources for their own professional development and for use with students in class. They also have the support of the GECDSB Open Minds Team.
