  • The Limestone District School Board is situated on the traditional territories of the Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee.  We acknowledge their enduring presence on this land, as well as the presence of Metis, Inuit and other First Nations from across Turtle Island.  We honour their cultures and celebrate their commitment to this land. 

  • BSS and the Limestone District School Board will be participating in Orange Shirt Day on Thursday.  All staff and students are asked to please wear an orange shirt to school on Thursday.  Videos about Orange Shirt Day will be shown in the main bear pit on Wednesday and Thursday at lunch.  Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake, BC in the spring of 2013.  If 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.  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.
