Orange Shirt Day,  Friday September 28, 2018
Students are encouraged to wear an orange shirt on Friday, September 28.  Here is a little information on orange shirt day and a link below.
“Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake in the spring of 2013.  It grew out of Phyllis’s account of losing her shiny new orange shirt 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 children are back in school and teachers have time to plan, and because it is an opportunity to set the stage for anti-racism and anti-bullying policies for the year.  Orange Shirt Day is also an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools and community agencies to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.” – Orange Shirt Society
We hope to see, a sea of orange this Friday!

Virden Junior High School

Virden Junior High has a responsibility to provide quality education for all students, with an openness to change that enables us to respond thoughtfully to the demands of the future.

An appreciation of, and belief in the diversity, strength and commitment of our communities, provides us with an understanding of communities in their broadest sense; including staffs, parents, families, homes, businesses, cultures, as well as our students as partners in education.

We value the fostering of healthy self-esteem and high achievement in students so that they may become self-directed, responsible adults. A respect for all people and their ideas, which is demonstrated in all decisions, actions and communications. A desire for safe, caring environments that show an appreciation of the talents, strengths and needs of our communities, and a desire for responsible citizens committed to lifelong learning for everyone-students, staff, parents, and all community members.
