This was the orange shirt that one of our staff, Ray John, wore on September 30th, the day we honoured the Residential Survivors. Here is a poem that was presented by Ms Brown’s class at a student assembly.
Every child needs love
Very sad things happened at residential schools
Education here at Antler River is good today
Reconciliation is good
You, me, us, them, he, she, I, we
Care for all children
Hunger shouldn’t happen
Ice cold kids were made
Dying children shouldn’t have happened
Move forward with our 7 Grandfather Teachings
Tell the truth about our history
Teach others about our past
End hatred toward others and each other
Remember our survivors
Speak and learn our Language.
