Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario (CSCNO) staff are looking forward to welcoming students on Wednesday, September 5, the first school day of the 2018-2019 school year.
This year’s theme “Vivre en disciples joyeux” (Living as Joyful Disciples) incites students to be fully open to the transforming love of God. This theme stems from the Assembly of Catholic Bishops of Ontario’s pastoral letter for Catholic education titled “Fulfilling the Promise”.
“We are always excited to see our new and returning students,” said Ms. Lyse-Anne Papineau, CSCNO Director of Education. “With the support of our staff, parents and partners, we are committed to offering a quality French language Catholic education to all of our students.”
This year, the CSCNO expects some 6,850 students in its 37 schools with about 5,100 students registered in its 27 elementary schools and more than 1,750 students pursuing their studies in its ten secondary schools. Also worth noting, some 1,030 students will be benefiting from CSCNO’s proven expertise with the Full Time Kindergarten Program offered in all of its French language Catholic elementary schools.
Located in the heart of a dynamic region with a strong Francophone tradition, the Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario is one of the largest Francophone school boards in Ontario and in French Canada. The area served by the CSCNO includes the communities of Chapleau, Dubreuilville, Espanola, Greater Sudbury, Hornepayne, Michipicoten, North Shore, Sault Ste. Marie and Sudbury East.
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.
