The Limestone District School Board (LDSB) has a commitment to both teaching and learning the truth, and taking strides towards meaningful action that reflects reconciliation and right relations with the Indigenous community in Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington.  

For the month of September, LDSB schools and the education centre will display the Every Child Matters Flag or the Survivors’ Flag as an expression of remembrance and to honour residential school Survivors and all the lives and communities continuing to be impacted by the residential school system in what is now known as Canada.  

This year, National Orange Shirt Day and National Day for Truth and Reconciliation fall on Saturday, September 30, so schools will honour the day on Friday, September 29. We will be focused on Indigenous Education school-based opportunities that exist beyond the day, and extend throughout the school year, so that as a community, we are continually taking action to live in right relations with each other. 

Everyone is encouraged to learn more about the history of residential schools and engage in meaningful discussions about the effects of residential schools, the ongoing impact, and the legacy they have left behind.
