AST will be marking Orange Shirt Day on Thursday September 30th, National Day for Truth & Reconciliation. On this day, we recognize Canada’s indigenous people, children, and families, impacted by Canada’s Indian Residential Schools. We will be joining schools throughout the Board in a special assembly. As Catholics, we often focus on reconciliation; this day marks our commitment to acknowledging that these wrongs should never happen to anyone again. We are asking staff and students to wear something orange on Thursday.
