With this funding, the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum recognizes the expertize of ESC Champlain in the area of technology and supports the secondary school in its efforts to offer valuable learning opportunities to its students. “The funding will allow us to add a CNC (computer numerical control) table to our school’s construction workshop, strengthen the school’s grades 11–12 robotics program which represents the Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario (CSCNO) at Skills Ontario competitions and initiate grade 9 and 10 students to the robotics program,” explains Champlain principal, Yves Laliberté.

ÉSC Champlain stands out for its incorporation of digital age tools into every level of learning, as well as by its STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) approach, which promotes student commitment, flourishing and excellence as well as the acquisition of world-class skills.

“École secondaire catholique Champlain has earned a far-reaching reputation by its technology and engineering initiatives,” stated Mrs. Lyse-Anne Papineau, CSCNO Director of Education. “We are thrilled by this support from the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum. The funds will enable the school to continue to offer more enriched learning opportunities to students.”

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 enrolled in 27 elementary and 10 secondary schools.
