    Orange Shirt Day 2016

    Sep 30, 2016

"Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission residential school commemoration event, held in spring 2013 in Williams Lake, BC. It grew out of a former student?s account of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission. The orange shirt is meant to recognize the harm done to residential school students and show a commitment to the principle that every child matters! A date in September was chosen because it is the time of year when children were taken from their homes to residential schools, and because it is an opportunity to set the stage for anti-racism and anti-bullying policies for the coming school year. It is also 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."

    33rd Annual Educator Appreciation Luncheon

    Jan 01, 2016

    Every year NEFDHA hosts a lunch to show its appreciation for the important work our educators do each day. During the luncheon we recognize educators who are celebrating 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 years of service with a cash bonus. We also recognize our educators who attend post-secondary education with a $100 bursary.
