ORANGE SHIRT DAY AT BROCKTON

On September 29th, Brockton students are encouraged to wear an orange shirt for our Truth and Reconciliation Assembly. Orange Shirt Day originates from the story of Phyllis Webstad from the Stswecem’c Xgat’tem First Nation. In 1973, on her first day at St. Joseph’s Residential School in Williams Lake, BC, Phyllis’s shiny new orange shirt was stripped from her, never to be seen again. We wear orange as an action to show our support that EVERY CHILD MATTERS, our Indigenous community matters, and learning for life matters. In our next newsletter, we will provide a list of local events that you and your family can attend on Truth and Reconciliation Day on September 30th to build community relationships and learn about our local Indigenous communities.
