Wednesday, September 30 * Day 4

ALL SCHOOL

GENERAL:

  • Wednesday September 30th this week is Orange Shirt Day where we honour indigenous children that were sent away to residential schools. GVS will be holding our Orange Shirt Day on Friday October 2nd this week, but if you are a high school student coming Wednesday or Thursday and wish to participate, please wear your orange shirt on the day you come to school. Will there be any challenges between classes to see who can show up with the most orange shirts?  GVS is very excited to also welcome the Roseau River Anishinabe Sons of Drums and Dancers in on Friday.  The drumming and dancing will take place in our gym starting at 10:00 am.   The event will be recorded and classes will be able to view the presentation from their class.

We invite ALL of our students and staff to wear Orange to show our commitment  to continue our learning and to raise awareness of the residential school experience and to ensure that every child matters as we focus on our hope for a better future for ALL CHILDREN.

Lets represent GVS! (Run the rest of this week)

  • The Phys. Ed staff will be doing their own Terry Fox run in Fitness classes for the next couple of weeks.  Anyone wishing to donate can go to terryfox.org website.
