Orange Shirt Orders

Every September 30, since 2013, the Delta School District recognizes Orange Shirt Day, a day to remember all those affected by the Residential School System that ran in Canada from 1831 – 1996. This year, the Indigenous Education Department is pleased to offer all families a chance to order a customized Delta t-shirt for Orange Shirt Day. If you would like to place an order, please fill in the information below. T-shirts are $15 for Youth Sizes and $20 for Adult Sizes. The following payments are accepted: Cheques (payable to Delta School District); cash; or e-transfer to djubinville@deltaschools.ca We are also making the t-shirt sales part of a fundraiser for a Traditional Journey canoe. This has been Nathan’s dream to have one for the youth for quite some time. With every tshirt order, we are giving a “Show Love” heart window sticker in memory of the bodies of the children found at the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation in Kamloops a few weeks ago. Please consider supporting us in this endeavor.
