ECI and EES Participate in Orange Shirt Day

Orange Shirt
Ms McKay, our BSSIP coordinator and liaison with RRFN, splits her time between our school and Erickson Elementary.  For Orange Shirt Day, which is a day for raising awareness about the impact of residential schools, she created a bulletin board and made a presentation to the student body.  Ms McKay also made arrangements for Mr. Dennis White Bird, a member of  RRFN and the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs, to come and speak with our students about the impact of residential schools on First Nations people.  Staff wore orange shirts on a couple of days and the students were encouraged to do so also.  Mrs. Boyd and her Grade 9 English class participated in the elementary school’s Orange Shirt Day walk.  Ms McKay, Mr. White Bird, and our own Mr. Mathews are working on creating a digital archive for RRFN.
