Orange Shirt Day 2021

September 30th, 2021

Orange Shirt Day is an Indigenous-led grassroots commemorative day that honours the children who survived Indian Residential Schools and remembers those who did not. This day relates to the experience of Phyllis Webstad, a Northern Secwpemc (Shuswap) from the Stswecem'c Xgat'tem First Nation, on her first day of school, where she arrived dressed in a new orange shirt, which was taken from her. It is now a symbol of the stripping away of culture, freedom and self-esteem experienced by Indigenous children over generations. (Canadian Heritage Campaign 2021)

Thank you to Mrs. Erdelyi's class for their work on the expression of Woodland Art which is a style of First Nations' art that expressed the connection of symbolism and spirituality of plants, animals and people using bold colours. Ojibway legend Norval Morrisseau was considered the 'Picasso of the North', and was awarded the Order of Canada in 1978.

Black Shirt Day

On January 17, 2022, millions of Americans will be commemorating Martin Luther King Jr. – an influential civil rights leader best known for his work on racial equality in the United States. Here in Canada at the Ottawa Catholic School Board, our community will be celebrating Black Shirt Day to take a board-wide stand against anti-Black racism.

This day builds on the foundation of the OCSB’s Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Framework by bringing Black successes and issues center-forward. As we continue the UN International decade of People of African Descent, we hope to take this day to uplift and highlight our Black community members throughout the OCSB.

This is a new event created by the OCSB Black Educator Network and the OCSB’s Leading and Learning Department to provide students, educators, employees and families throughout the city with the opportunity to stand up against racism and celebrate Black excellence in our community. You can learn more about our efforts to create a more equitable learning environment on our Equity page.

Remember to wear your black shirt on January 17! Share a photo of your black shirt on social media and remember to include the hashtags #ocsbEquity and #ocsbBlackShirtDay.
