Local Students To Participate in Franco-Ontarian Games

Nearly a dozen local students will be showing off their skills this weekend, competing against Francophone students across Ontario.

The local French Catholic school board, CSC Nouvelon, says 48 students from its schools will be participating in this weekend's Franco-Ontarian Games, including two students from Chapleau's Ecole secondaire catholique Trillium, and nine from Wawa's Ecole secondaire Saint-Joseph: Keenan Collis; Sarah Chevrier; Cole Smedts; Hunter Schumacher; Hunter Chiasson; Wesley Stewart; Travis Stewart-Gauthier; Démily Thibodeau-Bello; and Reid Hunter.

The Franco-Ontarian Games are being held in the Greater Sudbury community of Hanmer, with more than 650 francophone students from 106 French language Catholic and public secondary schools to compete in eight categories: sports; visual arts; improvisation; quiz; circus arts; music; dance; and media.
