KHCAS will be honouring Orange Shirt Day on Monday, October 1.
Orange Shirt Day is an opportunity for First Nations, local governments and organizations, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.
Please take a few moments to view this short video and keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools happening annually: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3vUqr01kAk. In the video, Phyllis Westad (need Jack) recounts her first day at residential school when she wore a shiny orange shirt that her Granny had bought for her. When she got to the school, her new orange shirt was taken from her and never returned.
We encourage all service partners, stakeholders and community members to join with us and wear an orange shirt.
Orange Shirt Day – October 1
EVERY CHILD MATTERS.
