We are inviting our students and staff to join thousands of others across Canada and wear an orange shirt on Friday, September 28th to honour the children who survived the Indian Residential Schools and remember those that didn’t. Please note that the actual Orange Shirt Day is September 30th. As it falls on a Sunday this year, we chose to recognize the event on September 28th.
We will wear orange shirts in recognition of the harm the residential school system did to children’s sense of self-esteem and well-being, and as an affirmation of our commitment to ensure that everyone around us matters. For our students we are focusing on the message that every child matters. Please find below more information about Orange Shirt Day taken from the Orange Shirt Day website.

The kids all braved the cold weather and ran the 2 km race with smiles on their faces! Everyone who participated did a great job and we would like to congratulate them all on their participation today!
Also a big thank you to the BES Coaching Team:
Mrs. Morrow, Mrs. Klein, Mrs. Young, and Mrs. Wierenga!!
