On September 30th, students at NVSS and other participating schools, wore orange shirts to acknowledge and honour First Nations people affected by residential schools — we remember!

It was prompted by Pricilla Mueller and Geraldine Johnny (Aboriginal Education department at NVSS).

Kathy Russell and Anna Pye and the We Day students got together and made posters, t-shirts and helped to spread awareness.

I think it was a good opportunity for us all to wrap our heads around this issue and what we believe or believed to be true and we tried to think about putting ourselves in that position & what it would feel like or how it may affect future generations.

Seven generations went through residential schools and a lot of us never really thought about that!

We had some excellent discussions around the topic and heard from Geraldine and Pricilla who spoke of some of their parents/grandparent stories of being in Residential schools.
