May 31, 2018

As part of the 20th anniversary celebrations of Francophone Catholic schools, Ontario’s eight French language Catholic school boards undertook a Provincial Recognition Tour last fall with the support of the Association franco-ontarienne des conseils scolaires catholiques (AFOCSC), to recognize the work and exceptional commitment of the members of their school communities. The tour made one last stop in Sudbury, timed to coincide with the annual AFOCSC Congress, where the work of an exceptional school board trustee was recognized.

On Friday, May 25, Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario (CSCNO) school board trustee and President André Bidal was honoured for his many contributions to French  language Catholic education over almost 40 years.
