Sudbury Catholic Students and Staff Participate in National Sweater Day to Combat Climate Change


Each year on the first Thursday of February, Canadians are asked to turn down their heat and wear sweaters to raise awareness about climate change and energy conservation. Founded by WWF-Canada in 2010, more than a million Canadians have participated in National Sweater Day.

In an effort to combat climate change, Sudbury Catholic Schools participated in this initiative on February 6, 2020. Staff and students at Holy Cross School, St. David School, St. James School, St. Charles College, Marymount Academy, Bishop Alexander Carter C.S.S and the Catholic Education Centre brought their warmest sweaters as schools turned down the heat by 1.5 degrees celsius throughout the school day. Though the change in temperature was nominal; collectively, we as a Board made a statement regarding climate change and its impact on our world.
“National Sweater Day gave our staff and students an opportunity to reflect on how rising global temperatures are impacting the planet and how together we can help to reduce climate change by making small changes in our daily live,” said Joanne Bénard, Director of Education for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board. “By making a commitment to the planet on National Sweater Day, students and educators better understand the powerful impact that they can have.”

St. Charles College students take part in Family Literacy Day

While students in the secondary panel at St. Charles College are busy doing lots of reading and writing during exam week, many of the elementary students stopped to read for Family Literacy day.

Family Literacy day is held annually on January 27th. The day was created by ABC Life Literacy Canada in 1999 to encourage families to spend twenty minutes per day enjoying reading together.

Students in Mrs. Slywchuk and Mrs. Bock’s classes were especially excited about their novel selections. Even their teachers stopped to model good reading.

According to, one of the main benefits of reading is to develop vocabulary and language skills. Secondly, it allows them to use their imagination.

As well, 76% percent of young readers feel inspired to believe in themselves when they read.
