Students wear an orange shirt to demonstrate the commitment to reconciliation and the impact residential schooling has had on Canada both past and present.
St. Joseph worked together to create a beautiful set of wings. The theme was “What holds you up?” inspired by a children’s book called, You Hold Me Up by Monique Gray Smith, of Cree and Lakota descent. The story encourages children to show love and support for each other and to consider each other’s well-being in their everyday actions.
Students were asked to paint a feather and write on it something that holds them up, supports them, and/or makes them feel good about themselves.
Each staff and student had their picture taken in front of the wings. This was a reminder that we are all here for each other. We work together as a school community to lift one another up.
Great work students!
