Orange Shirt Day

École Frank Ross took part in many Orange Shirt Day activities on September 30, where we recognized the impact Residential Schools had on the Indigenous People of Canada.  Our school hung orange ribbons on the fence in our parking lot outlining the phrase "Every Child Matters".  Throughout the week students from the school will hang over 1000 ribbons, with each ribbon representing 6 children.  These ribbons are to honour the roughly 6000 children who died as a result of the Residential School System in Canada.  Classrooms in our school took part in different activities to recognize the importance of Orange Shirt Day and build our shared understanding of the impact Residential Schools had on Canada.
