On May 4 and 5, students from Blind River’s École secondaire catholique Jeunesse-Nord were among the 200 Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario (CSCNO) high school students who unleashed their passion for music and the arts at the 9th edition of the Mélomanie cultural artistic event. Secondary school students with a strong interest in the arts came together during this outstanding educational and identity-building experience and took part in a unique French language activity designed to complement the top-quality musical and arts programs offered in CSCNO high schools. The majority of activities took place on the Collège Boréal campus.
As part of this activity, students will take part in interactive workshops featuring well-known francophone artists and linked to their artistic passion.
Mélomanie concluded on Friday, May 5 at the Collège Boréal auditorium, with a set of performances for some 600 CSCNO grade 8 students from Greater Sudbury area French Catholic schools. Students from the following CSCNO high schools shared their musical talents with the audience: ÉSC Franco-Ouest (Espanola), ÉSC Champlain (Chelmsford), ÉSC Jeunesse-Nord (Blind River), ÉS Notre-Dame-du-Sault (Sault Ste. Marie), Collège Notre-Dame (Sudbury) and ÉSC l’Horizon (Val Caron).
