Orange Shirt Day at Watson

Friday, September 29th was Orange Shirt Day. Orange Shirt Day is about recognizing the resiliency and bravery of Residential School Survivors.  It is an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, school and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.

To recognize Orange Shirt Day at Watson, our students placed orange handprints on a banner.  At Watson we recognize that every child matters!

Orange Shirt Day

On Friday Sept. 29 2017 we are recognizing both the courage of Terry Fox as he raised funds for Cancer Research with our school event in the morning and the bravery of the survivors of Indigenous Residential Schools by participating in Orange Shirt Day so we are encouraging everyone to please look out an Orange Shirt to either wear all day and/or change into after lunch. Thank you!
