Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission (SJM) residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake, BC, Canada, in May 2013. It grew out of Phyllis' story of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission, and it has become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools happening annually.
The date was chosen because it is the time of year in which children were taken from their homes to residential schools, and because it is an opportunity to set the stage for anti-racism and anti-bullying policies for the coming school year.
Orange Shirt Day is also 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.

The students wrote their
own scripts, and we were REALLY excited to have a professional editor in
Toronto do the cutting and editing together with Amy, the director.
The screening took place

hope is that with your help, your child will not be ones to miss out on
the opportunity to experience the country's premier enrichment program.

of a fellow educator, "SHAD brings out so many of the students' strengths and
they come back renewed and completely blossomed; the shyer ones have come out
of their shells."

are available to ensure that SHAD is financially accessible. The SHAD Fellow
designation is recognized by universities & scholarship providers, and will
lead to a lifetime of benefits through our powerful alumni network.
"SHAD empowers youth to embrace their desires to change
their community and world while challenging them to learn. Although I still do
not necessarily know what I want to do in my future, SHAD has given me a new
outlook on what is possible in the future. It's given me the self-confidence
and support I need to realize that I am fully capable of achieving any dream I
have." - SHAD Fellow 2017

Mrs. Lisa Martin's grades 10, 11 and 12 visual art students are making art quilts. What makes this especially interesting is that they are wiring, from scratch, LED lights into the quilts and creating simple circuits. Mrs. Martine has partnered with Brilliant Labs who has sent her a nice array of clips, lights, adafruit microcontrollers, etc... The class has also purchased batteries, battery holders and conductive thread. While most students have never worked with electronics before, they have been coming up with solutions on their own when things don't work. Several students have decided they want to take the fibre art and electronics a step further and do an individualized project. Mrs. Martin has been learning a great deal from this experience. The grade 10 students in particular are very engaged in this.
