Orange Shirt Day 2021

The London District Catholic School Board will be honouring Orange Shirt Day during the week of September 27-October 1, 2021. During this time, we acknowledge the tragedy of residential schools in Canada, a tragedy that has become more pronounced since the discovery of thousands of unmarked graves of children at residential school sites across Canada. 
The LDCSB recognizes Orange Shirt Day as an important step in reconciliation with our Indigenous brothers and sisters and in particular with our neighbouring Indigenous nations Chippewas of the Thames First Nation, Munsee Delaware Nation, and Oneida Nation of the Thames. 
The LDCSB is thrilled to be a part of the Downie Wenjack Foundation's Legacy Schools Program which has provided resources to enrich and deepen the LDCSB's Orange Shirt Day experience for all students, K-12, within our Board. 
In recognition of the importance of this day, Indigenous Education partnered with videographer Raymund Garcia, to create an LDCSB Orange Shirt Day video for 2021. Please enjoy: Source: LDCSB Orange Shirt Day 2021
