SD83 Schools Special Orange Shirt Day

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

To show our support and respect for those Indigenous families who are greatly affected by the news connected to the Kamloops Residential School, A.L. Fortune will be holding a school-wide Orange Shirt Day on Tuesday, June 1st. As a school we will show our respect for an honor those who lost their lives at residential schools, and show support to families who are impacted by the news of the mass grave on the site of the residential school.

Sincerely,

Chris Matheson

Vice Principal

A.L. Fortune

Student Survey

All students in Grades 6-12 are being invited to take part in an optional survey to ensure a more safe, respectful, and equitable school-learning experience for all students.

“Your voice is important,” says District Principal Anne Tenning as she encourages all students to take part. She adds that much thought went into the survey and the district is hoping for a high participation rate from students as the information will be used to help set district goals, student improvement plans, and in-service, particularly for the Ministry’s Indigenous Education day. The survey was developed by the SD83 Equity Committee, which includes representatives from the local Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), North Okanagan Shuswap Teachers’ Association (NOSTA), SD83 Principals and Vice-Principals (PVP) and SD83’s senior leadership team (SLT).

All participant identities will be kept anonymous.

The survey will take about 10 to 20 minutes, depending on answers to a few of the open ended questions. Students are also invited to enter a separate contest at the end of the survey and have a chance to win some great prizes, including seven Samsung Galaxy Tablets. This survey closes on May 28, 2021 and the prize draw will take place on May 31, 2021.

Tenning explains the district received a small grant from the Ministry, and chose to use the funds for prizes for the students.
