Orange Shirt Day

If you are wondering what Orange Shirt Day is all about watch the following video:

 

Orange Shirt Day Video

 

 Having a conversation at home will help bring some understanding around the topic for you and your children

  

Parents here are some questions you could ask your children:

- What sort of bad things happened in Residential Schools?

- What was the purpose of Residential Schools? (Why were they created?)

- How would you or your family react if you had to go to one of these schools?

- Why is learning about this part of Canadian history important?
