Orange Shirt Day
Working towards Reconciliation
Honouring Residential School Suvivors
Imagining a better future
Learning from our elders
Deepening our knowledge of past wrongs
Listening with our hearts
Opening our minds
Orange Shirt Day is “an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come”. Thanks to our special guests DRMS did just that. Big Thanks to some of our Squamish Nation Elders: Joyce, Charlene, Anthony, Virginia and Cynthia for collaborating with our new VP Ms. Place, on a passionate and heartfelt presentation for our students. Thanks also to our own DRMS students Jocelyn, Ben and Bronson for your courage and willingness to take on such an important leadership role on this important day.
Ms. Kirk, Principal
