CSCNO schools celebrate Catholic Education Week

April 28, 2017

Sudbury – Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario (CSCNO) schools will celebrate Catholic Education Week under the theme “Walking Forward Together” theme. From April 30 to May 5, school boards across the province will promote the added value of a Catholic education and the overall excellence of Francophone Catholic schools.

Using a variety of classroom and school-wide academic and identity-based activities, students and school staff will be able to widen their understanding of the role they play in transforming society through Christian values. With a view to broadening our students’ French Catholic footprint, parents and the media are invited to visit our schools and share these moments of discovery with us.

“Catholic Education Week is the ideal occasion for our schools to share all the great and grand things that we do,” said CSCNO president André Bidal. “Over and above schoolbooks and lessons, we provide our students with an opportunity to thrive each and every day in an environment that encourages the transmission of Catholic and cultural values. Our students are the bearers of hope for society and represent the future.”

CSCNO Director of Education Lyse-Anne Papineau added, “Parents are well aware of the added value that a French Catholic education provides for their children. This special week makes it possible for us to experience more deeply this special bond between our staff, our students and the community, and to acknowledge our French Catholic heritage.”

The Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario offers a French Catholic Educational Program that is widely recognized for its excellence. The CSCNO provides a quality learning environment and academic program that runs from early childhood to adult education, with some 7,000 students in 27 elementary and 10 secondary schools.
