posted in: Home Page News | 0

DGH community, we are asking all of our students to wear orange on Tuesday, October 1st to recognize Orange Shirt Day. Orange Shirt Day is all about raising awareness of the impact of the Residential School System on the First Nations. This time of the year is chosen as this was the time of the year that children were removed from their homes and placed in residential schools. Orange Shirt Day also hopes to encourage all to come together in reconciliation. If you are interested in learning more, please click here to visit the Orange Shirt Day website.
