When six-year-old Phyllis Webstad was to attend residential school for the first time she was excited to wear her shiny new orange shirt. Upon arrival at the residential school the orange shirt was taken away from her, never to be returned. Since 2013, each year on September 30th we wear orange to honour the residential school survivors and their families.
The message of Orange Shirt Day founder Phyllis Webstad is that
EVERY CHILD MATTERS!
Lake Vista will celebrate Orange Shirt Day Wednesday Sept 30th!
If you don’t have an orange shirt don’t worry! Orange Shirt Day Stickers will be available for each student with ‘Every Child Matters’ printed on them.
