On September 27, École Saint-Joseph (Wawa) celebrated Franco-Ontarian Day with a great deal of passion! Students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 proudly wore green and white clothing and participated in many activities at school. A barbecue lunch was served to students and staff as part of festivities. Students were also able to enjoy a huge piece of cake decorated with the colours of the Franco-Ontarian flag.
Franco-Ontarian Day, celebrated officially since 2010, took 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. Students and staff from École Saint-Joseph take great pride in celebrating our flag’s 41st anniversary. While recognizing our Francophone and Catholic heritage, this activity promotes the excellence and dedication of our students and staff as they seek to widen their Francophone space and fully live their culture in the province of Ontario.
