Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St.Joseph Mission (SJM) residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake, BB< Canada in 2013. It grew out of Physillis’ story of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission. It has become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential school happening annually.
Our school division will recognize Orange Shirt Day on Friday, September 29th, 2023.
Each shirt is $14.00 for youth or adults. $1.00 from every shirt purchased will go towards an Indigenous Education Services Student Scholarship.
Payment can be made online via Visa, Visa Debit, MasterCard or Debit MasterCard or with exact cash at the school office. Please note we are unable to accept cheques for payment. Orders are due by September 17th until 11:59 pm and will be delivered to your school the week of September 25-28th, 2023.
To order your shirts please log into your parent portal through PowerSchool and select school “fees and form” on the tab at the bottom left-hand side of the page to link to your Rycor account. If you are having any issues logging into your PowerSchool account please contact your schools main office.
