Although Sunday, September 30, 2018 is Orange Shirt Day., students and staff are encouraged to wear an orange shirt on Monday, October 1, 2018.

Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission (SJM) residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake, BC, Canada, in the spring of 2013.  It grew out of Phyllis' story of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission, and it has become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools happening annually. 

The date was chosen because it is the time of year in which 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 also gives teachers time to plan events that will include children, as we want to ensure that we are passing the story and learning on to the next generations.

Orange Shirt Day 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.

The Ottawa Catholic School Board will close all schools and the Board office on Monday, September 24, 2018.

This decision was made in consultation with city emergency services due to extensive power outages and damage to several areas of the city. 

The safety of our students, families, and staff, is our top priority. 

School closures mean there is no before and after school care, child care centres are closed, and there is no community use of schools or extracurricular use of schools on Monday, September 24, 2018.

We continue to keep in our prayers the families and staff affected by Friday’s tornados, as well as all first responders. 

Please refer back to this website or the board website at on Monday, September 24, 2018 for an update regarding the next school day.
