CSPGNO students are United in action!

October 16 2017

On October 24th, 2017, more than 350 students from CSPGNO schools will come together for an event called UNIS pour l’action (United in Action). In a spirit of celebration and sharing, young participants from Hanmer, Macdonald-Cartier, Rivière-des-Français, Orée des Bois and Villa Française des Jeunes high schools will gather at École secondaire Macdonald-Cartier to discuss on how to make this world a better place.

The event will take place between 10 a.m. and noon and will be broadcasted live to allow for CSPGNO elementary schools and É. s. Cité-Supérieure of Marathon and É. s. Château-Jeunesse of Longlac to take part in this great initiative. Media representatives are invited to attend this activity.
CSPGNO joined the WE Mouvement three years ago, a movement that encourages and brings change based on the following beliefs: Me into WE, WE is Everyone, WE Are the Change, WE are a Global Community, I Am WE.
Speakers, activists and artists will be present to share their life experiences. The following special guests will have the opportunity to talk to students in order to raise awareness on social issues and inspire them to become agents of change at the local and international levels.
The event program features:
Mique Michelle, visual artist and Metis muralist;
Aiden Charest, artist and queer activist;
Mélissa Ouimet, Franco-Ontarian signer-songwriter;
Chloé Thériault, performance artist;
Marc-Daley Daphnic, guess speaker with the We Mouvement.

The annual event UNIS pour l’action is now in its third year. This gathering of hundreds of students broadens the horizons of young people, awakens them to the wide-ranging notion of responsible citizenship and inspires them to take a stand and make a difference in today’s world.  

CSPGNO will be…
“United” to discover the world!
“United” to transform communities!
“United” to change lives!
“United” to make a real and concrete difference!

Recognized for its keen sense of innovation and openness to the world, CSPGNO offers a French-language public education of the highest quality in eleven elementary schools and eight secondary schools in the communities of Markstay, Noëlville, Greater Sudbury, Elliot Lake, Sault Ste. Marie, Wawa, Dubreuilville, Marathon, Manitouwadge and Longlac.
