Over 70 000 students in schools across the province will be participating in the event.

Friday, September 29 ORANGE SHIRT DAY @ QES

​Friday, September 29- ORANGE SHIRT DAY @ QES.

What is Orange Shirt Day?

Orange Shirt Day is held every year on September 30th, but will be observed in schools on Friday September 29.

 

Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission (SJM) Residential School (1891-1981) Commemoration Project and Reunion events that took place in Williams Lake, BC, Canada, in May 2013. This project was the vision of Esketemc (Alkali Lake) Chief Fred Robbins, who is a former student himself. It brought together former students and their families from the Secwepemc, Tsilhqot’in, Southern Dakelh and St’at’imc Nations along with the Cariboo Regional District, the Mayors and municipalities, School Districts and civic organizations in the Cariboo Region.

The events were designed to commemorate the residential school experience, to witness and honour the healing journey of the survivors and their families, and to commit to the ongoing process of reconciliation. Chief Justice Murray Sinclair challenged all of the participants to keep the reconciliation process alive, and as a result of the realization that every former student had similar stories. Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of this project. As spokesperson for the Reunion group leading up to the events, former student Phyllis (Jack) Webstad told her story of her first day at residential school when her shiny new orange shirt, bought by her grandmother, was taken from her as a six-year old girl.

 

The annual Orange Shirt Day on September 30th opens the door to global conversation on all aspects of Residential Schools. It is an opportunity to create meaningful discussion about the effects of Residential Schools and the legacy they have left behind. A discussion all Canadians can tune into and create bridges with each other for reconciliation. "A day or reaffirmation for survivors that they, as well as all others who have been affected, do indeed matter. Hence the slogan: Every Child Matters - and every person was once a child.

 

"The date was chosen to coincide with the time of year in which indigenous children were taken from their homes to attend residential schools. It is also an opportune time in the school year to set the stage and the tone for anti-racism and anti-bullying schools policies. It is an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.

 

 It all started in the Cariboo Region, and as a result, School District No. 27 has been chosen by the First Nations Education Steering Committee (FNESC) to pilot curriculum changes for all Grade 5 and Grade 10 students reflecting the residential school experience, to be implemented province-wide.

 

Resolutions have been passed in support of Orange Shirt Day by local governments, school districts, and First Nations in the Cariboo Region, at UBCM, and at FCM. The AFN Chiefs-in-Council passed a resolution declaring Orange Shirt Day “a first step in reconciliation”, and pledging to bring the message home as well as to the government of Canada and the churches responsible. On this day, we call upon humanity to listen with open ears to the stories of survivors and their families, and to remember those who didn’t make it.

QES Accept RHS' Kindness Challenge!

​The QES leadership group, The ROCKSTARs, have accepted Riverview High's kindness challenge in support or #BeccaToldMeTo!


Some of you may have heard about the hashtag BeccaToldMeTo. This was created by a teenager from Riverview named Becca Schofield who is very sick with brain cancer. One of her wishes is that people simply be kind to others.

Because the province of New Brunswick has named Saturday September 16th, 2017, Becca Schofield Day, staff and students across New Brunswick will be honouring Becca Schofield by doing random acts of kindness for others from today until Wednesday, September 20th. These acts of kindness will be recorded using the little slips of paper in your classroom envelopes and we will calculate the number of acts on a thermometer in the lobby of our school. We will also be reading some of these kindness acts over the morning announcements, so be sure to take a few minutes each day to do little acts of kindness for people around you so you can feel good about yourself and feel a part of this important and selfless initiative.

 For older students (grades 5-8): Also, once you have completed your act of kindness, please use #BeccaToldMeTo to communicate your act on social media.​ 

Our goal is to report one act of kindness for every staff and student at QES!  Please help us honor Becca & our school values.
