National Day for Truth & Reconciliation
The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation honours the children who never returned home and the survivors of residential schools, as well as their families and communities. Public commemoration of the tragic and painful history and ongoing impacts of residential schools is a vital component of the reconciliation process.
Orange Shirt Day is an Indigenous-led grassroots commemorative day intended to raise awareness of the individual, family, and community inter-generational impacts of residential schools, and to promote the concept of “Every Child Matters”. The orange shirt is a symbol of the stripping away of culture, freedom, and self-esteem experienced by Indigenous children over generations. Since schools are closed on September 30, Rundle staff and students will be wearing orange on September 29 to honour the thousands of survivors of residential schools.
No school – campuses closed.
Please note that Child Care is closed for the day.
