For this week’s #ocsbFridayFeeling, we honoured Truth and Reconciliation Week and students expanded their knowledge of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit culture and history throughout the week. A sea of orange shirts could be seen across our school communities on Orange Shirt Day. The healing begins now. #ocsbIndigenous, #ocsbReconciliAction
