HCDSB Comes Together in the Spirit of Reconciliation for Orange Shirt Day
​​HCDSB joins communities in the Region of Halton and across Canada in acknowledging Orange Shirt Day on Monday, September 30th, 2019.

Orange Shirt Day is an annual event and a growing movement of reconciliation, in honour of our Indigenous communities and the impact of the residential school system.

Wearing an orange shirt affirms that we honour the human dignity in all, and shows our commitment to the principle that every child matters.

A date in September was chosen because it is the time of year when children were taken from their homes to residential schools, and also marks an opportunity to set the stage for anti-racism and anti-bullying for the coming school year.

Participating in Orange Shirt Day is also a time for our Indigenous sisters and brothers, local governments, schools, and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.​

Thank you to our students, staff, parents and families for joining the movement!​
