HRH Or­ange Shirt Day

The McLeod River Post - - Education matters -

On Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 1, the stu­dents and staff at Holy Redeemer wore or­ange shirts in hon­our of all the First Na­tions, Metis and Inuit peo­ple af­fected by Res­i­den­tial Schools in Canada. At the begin­ning of the day, the school took a mo­ment to come to­gether in the spirit of rec­on­cil­i­a­tion and hope for gen­er­a­tions of chil­dren to come. Here, the teach­ing staff stops for a quick photo. “This is such an im­por­tant teach­ing mo­ment for our stu­dents,” says FNMI Di­rec­tor Kim Nahir­niak. “It is by par­tic­i­pat­ing in things like this, our stu­dents truly learn the mean­ing of rec­on­cil­i­a­tion.”
