Francofun Day really did get fun and competitive with the help of board games at St. Charles College on March 20, 2014. The students celebrated their French language and culture by playing The Game of Life/Destins, French Pictionary and Tic Tac Boom in teacher Anthony Malafarina’s Immersion class.
“This forced the students to converse and have fun while thinking about French language studies” said Malafarina.
The Franco Fun day was celebrated today by all Sudbury Catholic Schools in either Core French or Immersion classes.
This is the fourth year that the Winter Adventure Race has been held at the Killarney Shebanoning Outdoor Environment Education Centre (K.S.O.E.E.C).
St. Charles College competed againstt the other board high schools – St. Benedict’s, Bishop Alexander and Marymount to take the title.
The three part race consists of running, target shooting and an orienteering exercise.
The group won the race in 1 hour and 13 minutes. They were 6 minutes ahead of the next team to cross the finish line.
Almost one thousand students at St. Charles College bit down on their apples – on the last day of school heading into March break.
At ten o’clock the students created a collective crunch to celebrate Nutrition month in Ontario.
The event is celebrated each March with fruits and vegetables like broccoli and celery and it is organized by the head of the school breakfast club, teacher Elizabeth Szilva.
As part of the Ash Wednesday service at St. Charles College, the students’ FIRST robotics team presented a cheque to Deacon Steve. The cheque in the amount of four hundred dollars will be used to support Chalice, a Catholic organization that supports children in Third World countries.
Every year, the school aims to financially support a handful of children in places like Haiti, Bolivia and Africa. Throughout the Lenten season, the students take up a collection in their homerooms. These students created a business plan that involved getting community sponsorship. Werner Scherzinger, who heads up the group says “we wanted to support children who have nothing and want very little.”
