UPEI’s Faculty of Education, working in conjunction with the PEI Department of Education, Early Learning and Culture, will honour Orange Shirt Day on September 29. Orange Shirt Day is an annual day of commemoration to continue the discussion about residential schools and their impacts.

Orange Shirt Day is named for an event in the life of Phyllis Webstad, a residential school survivor who had her new orange shirt taken on her first day of school in Williams Lake, British Columbia.

“In terms of history, it’s important to never forget,” said Brian Francis, Chief of Abegweit First Nation. “In order to move forward, we need to acknowledge our past and learn from it so that we never make the same mistakes again.”

Schools across PEI will receive resources to allow teachers and students to explore the topic of residential schools. The actual date for Orange Shirt Day is September 30, but school events will be held September 29.

Schools across the Atlantic region will be encouraged to wear orange T-shirts on September 29. At UPEI, representatives from the Faculty of Education will be handing out “every child matters” buttons and orange shirts. Keep an eye out on September 29.
