The students and staff of NSER marked Orange Shirt day on Friday, September 29th. This day commemorates children who did, and did not, survive the Residential Schools system in Canada. This day signifies a day of remembrance, but also a day to affirm that "Every Child Matters" and the commitment to ensure a better future for all children.
NSER will be marking Orange Shirt Day this Friday, September 29th, as part of a national day of recognition of Indian Residential Schools survivors, and those who did not survive. The idea behind the symbol of the orange shirt originated with the story of Phyllis Webstad, a residential school survivor from British Columbia. On her first day of school, the new orange shirt her grandmother has bought for her was taken away and replced by a school uniform.
On Thursday, September 21, NSER students and staff participated in our Walk-A-Thon, walking 10.5 kilometers and raising $9,000! Thank you to all who supported our school by making a donation. A special thank you to local businesses for their generous support that helped make this fundraiser such a success - Beaudet Motors Ltd. and R. Tozer Construction Ltd.
In June NSER Celebrated their 65th Anniversary and we were very pleased to have received new display cabinets in our Lobby. Mr. Bill Tozer and Mr. Veryl Tozer worked tirelessly for several weeks to make beautiful cabinets that would hold years of our schools heritage.
