Principal's Message

Orange Shirt Day

​Orange Shirt Day is on September 30 annually. It began in 2013, when residential school survivor Phyllis Webstad shared how her orange shirt was taken away on her first day at residential school. This story is an opportunity for students and staff to reflect on history, legacy and implications, to discuss stories of survival and strength and to share ways we can work together toward truth and reconciliation. It is also an opportunity to commit to commemorating the children who attended residential schools, recognizing their experiences, honoring them and sharing a collective commitment to ensure that every child matters and that each student is welcome, safe, respected and cared for in their learning community every day. (CBE Indigenous Education)
 
At O.S. Geiger, we are engaging in discussions and learning about the importance of Orange Shirt Day and Residential Schools through a video of Phyllis Webstad's personal experience and story books such as Shi shi etko by Nicola I. Campbell and Stolen Words by Melanie Florence.

Thank-you,

Valerie Murphy - Principal
Esther Peltier - Indigenous Education Learning Leader​
Jeanine Perszon - Assistant Principal
