École Notre-Dame-du-Sault students and staff celebrate their Francophone pride


On Thusday, September 23, students and staff at École Notre-Dame-du-Sault in Sault Ste. Marie displayed their Franco-Ontarian pride. In addition to a flag-raising ceremony, Franco-Ontarians Day was celebrated though a series of activities offered to students.

Notre-Dame-du-Sault students had the chance to display with pride green and white clothing in their classroom while taking part in stimulating activities highlighting Franco-Ontarian culture. The COVID-19 pandemic will not prevent students and staff from proudly celebrating their identity and their belonging to the Francophonie in Ontario.

The provincial Franco-Ontarian day, celebrated officially since 2010, will take place on September 25. The date marks the anniversary of the Franco-Ontarian flag, which was flown for the first time in Sudbury in 1975. CSC Nouvelon school students and staff take great pride in celebrating the flag’s 46th anniversary. The day of activities, while recognizing our Francophone and Catholic heritage, also promotes the excellence and dedication of our students and staff as they seek to widen their Francophone space and live their own culture to the full in the province of Ontario.
