This Wednesday

We have two special events happening this Wednesday, September 30th at Wilshire.

First, we will be having our Annual Terry Fox Walk/Run. Classes will be going outside, one group at a time, to run or walk in honour of Terry. If you have not already, please consider donating at www.terryfox.org. Thank you to Mrs. Bonura for organizing this even.

Also, Wednesday is Orange Shirt Day, which recognizes the Indigenous survivors of residential schools. The colour orange is connected to the experience of a little girl who went to her first day of school wearing a brand new orange shirt. Her shirt was taken away from her and she was forced to wear the school uniform instead. We honour all of the children who were sent to residential schools for their bravery. When we wear orange, we show that every child matters. We are encouraging all children to wear orange on Wednesday.
