The Native Language students at St. David Catholic School embarked on a campaign of education. Students promoted and educated their peers on "Orange Shirt Day". This day of remembrance was started by Phyllis Webstad. Ms. Wedstad wore an orange shirt on her first day at residential school when she was six years old. When the Stswecem'c Xgat'tem First Nation student arrived at the school, her shirt was removed and taken away.|
Webstad began her annual Orange Shirt campaign in 2013 and has since shared her story with thousands of Canadians. St. David School was proud to participate in celebrating the resilience of the families impacted by the residential school system.
