Local school celebrates Franco-Ontarian pride with virtual activities

Staff, students at École Notre-Dame-du-Sault explore Franco-Ontarian culture this week

During the week of Sept. 21 to 25, students and staff at École Notre-Dame-du-Sault in Sault Ste. Marie displayed their Franco-Ontarian pride.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic made it impossible to gather or participate in a group flag-raising ceremony, Franco-Ontarians Day was celebrated though a series of virtual activities offered to Francophone students in the province.

In addition, 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.
