On Wednesday, September 25, at 10 a.m., over 2,100 elementary and secondary students from some 15 Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario (CSCNO) schools will gather at Place Bonaventure (4764 Regional Road) in Chelmsford to take part in the celebration of the provincial Franco-Ontarian Day. As it has since 2008, this annual Francophone pride event will begin with an animated march and conclude with a host of events on the École secondaire catholique Champlain school grounds (61 Brookside St.). All members of the community are invited to attend this event organized by Champlain students and staff. First held in 2008, this pride building activity is very popular among CSCNO students, staff and families.
