Jersey Day in Support of the Humboldt Broncos

Dear Connaught Families,

Like all Canadians, the staff at Connaught have been deeply moved by the tragedy that occurred in Saskatchewan this past Friday.  We want to allow the school community an opportunity to show their support in a way that is appropriate and non-frightening for the students.  To do so, we will participate in “Jersey Day” ( poster attached) which is planned for Thursday April 12th. This is something that is being promoted throughout BC as a way to show support for the victims, their families and communities.  Students will have the opportunity to participate in this movement if they would like to and we encourage each of you to join us.  Teachers will introduce the topic to their students in a manner that is age appropriate.  If students do not have a jersey, they can wear clothing that is sports related, or they can wear green and yellow (the colours of the Humboldt Broncos) or even a green ribbon.

Here is a link to a news story on the Jersey Day:
