The St.Amant Jordan’s Principle team and the Diversity and Inclusion Committee has provided an Orange Shirt Day activity sheet that allows for learning and reflection as well as an opportunity for creativity for all ages.
Decorate your own orange shirt with the supplies you have at home.
Trace your hand, and draw or write something inside the hand showing your promise to what YOU can do to help others feel like they matter. Every Child Matters.
Once you are finished decorating your new shirt talk to someone about how you would feel if your new shirt was taken away when you started school. This loss is one experienced by many children who entered residential school.
Show your finished art in your window, on your fridge, or take a picture and tag St.Amant on social media or email MCommodore@stamant.ca.
Submit your entries by noon on Monday, October 5. You’ll be entered to win a copy of David A. Robertson’s book “When We Were Alone” and a NuTrendz purse.
We all as a community can keep the conversation going this year in even more creative ways that are reconciliation in action.
In addition to visiting orangeshirtday.org for educational resources on residential schools, the following links also offer information about them.
