Chief Littlechild and Archbishop Smith's Statement on Kamloops and Reconciliation
Wear orange to show our support and love this Tuesday, June 8th-We can love, we can pray, we can listen...
On Tuesday, June 8th, our EICS schools will be acknowledging the 215 children from the Kamloops residential school grave site discovery. We are asking students and staff to wear an orange shirt on that day, to pause for a moment between 2:00-2:15 pm for a brief recorded message from Central Learning Services and to take a moment of silence in honour of the children. The flags will be raised to full height the following day.
We can love, we can pray, we can listen...we can do better...
