St. Charles College

Making Their Votes Count

There are no current national or provincial elections to study so students at St. Charles College have created a mock election of their own. 
The grade ten Civics students in teacher James Suchoplas’ class had to create a political party complete with name and platform and deliver their enticing speeches to the students in the Life Skills classes.
The Life Skills students have the job of selecting a mock leader and party to run the school by way of secret ballot.
Suchoplas says “The election was an excellent way for students to study issues that impact students and then find ways to strive for change.”
Some groups even went so far as to create their own political campaign commercial.

Provincial Funding for St. Charles College Will Make the School an Even Safer Campus of Excellence

Provincial Member of Parliament Rick Bartolucci announced 3.3 million dollars in funding today for the St. Charles College campus.
Bartolucci made the announcement at the school citing the improvements will help create an even safer environment.
Sudbury Catholic Board Chair, Jody Cameron says the money will be used to build an administration area on the main floor of the school.  Currently the office is situated upstairs on the second level, which is not ideal.

Principal Patty Mardero says “great things are happening at St. Charles College and now beautiful things are to come.”
Board Chair Jody Cameron says construction is expected to begin in May of this year.
