OSCbanner-01The Society for Safe and Caring Schools & Communities is holding a province–wide contest for students to design a logo for this year’s Orange Shirt Campaign!


Orange Shirt Day, taking place on September 30, 2016, is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission (SJM) residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake, BC, Canada, in the spring of 2013. It grew out of former student Phyllis’s account of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission, and ithas become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools happening annually.
