Wearing Any Jersey on Thursday for Humboldt!

Message from Director of Education, Loretta Notten…


As many of you are already aware, Canadians from coast, to coast to coast will join together on Thursday, April 12th for a special “Jersey Day” to honour the victims of last Friday’s tragedy involving the Humboldt Saskatchewan Broncos hockey team.

We have flown our flags at half-mast yesterday and today as a sign of solidarity with the victims and their families. We now invite all students and staff to offer a further sign of support by wearing a sports jersey to school (or to your board admin facility) on Thursday. We further encourage you to share your photos on social media so that all affected by the tragedy will know the entire WCDSB community is thinking of them, and praying for them. You may wish to include the hashtags #humboldtstrong and #humboldtbroncos.
