Oldfield Consolidated Elementary

Orange Shirt Day - Every Child Matters

Oldfield will honour Orange Shirt Day on Thurs. Sept. 27 and everyone is encouraged to wear orange shirts (or ribbons, ties, piece of cloth). This day is a chance to increase awareness about the thousands of Indigenous children across Canada who were forced from their homes to attend residential schools. Acknowledging this day provides an active invitation for our region to participate in reconciliation.  Check out this video from Jacob Gale, HRCE’s new Coordinator of Mi’kmaq Education Services:  https://youtu.be/IxMSnnTj53k
