St. Charles College Partners with Local Theatre Experts for Empowering Drama Workshop for Learning Support Students!

Alessandro Constantini and Colton Gobbo, both respected alumni of St. Charles School and renowned figures in the world of theatre, recently joined forces with St. Charles College to create an inspiring workshop tailored for the school’s learning support students. This collaborative effort resulted in a truly unforgettable educational experience for students within the realm of drama.

This workshop offered students an exceptional, hands-on learning experience that immersed them in the enchanting world of theatre while also providing invaluable insights about the fundamental aspects of acting from two seasoned professionals in the field.

On this occasion, students actively participated in a series of theatre games designed to enhance their creative abilities and foster self-confidence. A standout moment during the workshop was the “sweater game,” a distinctive exercise that allowed students to practice their newly acquired skills.

The program reached its culmination with an enlightening Q&A session, providing students with the opportunity to delve deeper into the art of acting. Alessandro Constantini and Colton Gobbo generously shared their personal experiences and vast knowledge, leaving a lasting impression on students and inspiring them to explore the boundless opportunities that await them in the area of performing arts.

The Sudbury Catholic District School Board extends its heartfelt appreciation to Ms. P. Demore and St. Charles College and Alessandro and Colton for their unwavering dedication to nurturing artistic talent and enriching the lives of our learning support students.

To further demonstrate support for the arts in Sudbury, check out the upcoming productions at the Sudbury Theatre Centre. “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” is poised to grace the Sudbury Theatre Centre stage on October 20th and will run until November 4th. This production promises to be a captivating journey into the world of theatre, showcasing Sudbury’s remarkable local talent. Keep an eye out, as you might even spot some Sudbury Catholic District School Board graduates among the cast!

Sudbury Catholic Schools was proud to host a professional administration day for education staff devoted to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) on October 24, 2022. The Board partnered with several local organizations to create engaging and innovative learning sessions.

Sessions included:

This day included a walking tour of the trades/ technology departments on campus, examples of hands-on learning activities and a workshop with Larissa Hoffman, VP of Edge Factor, who will provide an overview of their updated online platform and how Edge Factor can promote STEM careers to students.
  • Game Design Program at Cambrian College: Educators explored Game Design at Cambrian College with Professor, Program Director, and CBC Radio Tech Talk Host Aaron Langille.

  • Science North: Participants completed several activities including: SHSM workshops, turtle crossing Demo, Planetarium show and a bit coding workshop. 
  • Connections Between Land and Art: Jessica Somers, an Indigenous Artist, guided participants through a land-based teaching about the Birch Tree and medicines. Participants were also guided through a painting workshop as they learned about the power of the spirit bear. 
  • Outdoor learning at St. David School: Participants learned on the land as they were guided through an outdoor professional development session. Educators spent the day learning outside, connecting with nature, and exploring the various benefits that land based teaching can offer. 
  • STEM Activities with Logics Academy: Educators had the opportunity to learn about robotics and Dash and how to integrate it into their classrooms! 
  • Skills Ontario- Walking Robots Challenge: Katie Cameron, program facilitator for Skills Ontario introduced teachers to Skills Ontario and their variety of programs and services.

In her role, she manages the development of the Learning Pathways program. She introduced teachers to Live STEM broadcasts, learning pathways and live events.

STEM Storytime is a weekly series offered on Tuesdays at 1pm! Each week a Let’s Talk Science Outreach student along with Ryan will read a storybook followed by a hands-on activity.
  • STEM Club: Junior teachers met Nick Butt.  Nick Butt is an Outreach Coordinator with Let’s Talk Science. He is manager, developer, and host of STEM Club. Each week, Let’s Talk Science, features a different hands-on activity using minimal, easy-to-find materials. Students will also have the chance to learn from and ask questions to inspire STEM role models.

We would like to thank all partners who helped create hands-on sessions and provided our educational staff with learning opportunities that can be recreated in our classrooms!

Camera’s, lights, action – St. Charles College student is Oklahoma bound for film

Phoenix Wilson

Fourteen year old Phoenix Wilson likes to travel to pursue filming opportunities and next on tap, he is off to Oklahoma.

Wilson worked on a Sun Dance scene for Wild Indian in 2017 which allowed him the opportunity to spend time in Utah, shoot scenes and work with Director Lyle Mitchell Corbiere. That’s where he got noticed and is now prepping for the full film of the same title.

Phoenix will play the role of Mkwaa, a young adult in the film. He shares the role with an actor by the name of Chaske Spencer. Phoenix has already worked with Spencer in the tv series on Netflix called Longmire.

Phoenix received the latest script about two weeks ago and has been rehearsing the lines at home. “The easiest way to remember lines is by chunking the work and reciting the lines to my favourite person.” That favourite person is his mom and cheer leader, Marty Wilson who teaches at St. Charles College where Phoenix attends school.

Phoenix started acting at around the age of six or seven. He was so young he really cannot remember his few roles. He’s been featured Longmire, Letterkenny, Two Lovers in a Bear, Maple Mysteries and Hard Rock Medical. Phoenix leaves on November 25th for Oklahoma.

St. Charles College’s Dance Focus class teams up with Spotlight Dance Company

A group of students dance in a studio.

With the tunes always blaring, Mrs. Patricia Demore’s dance class is the place to be this semester.

The twenty-some students registered in the class have been getting in some intense work outs between their cardio pumping dance sessions and those special surprise days when they get in a field trip to a local dance studio.

The troupe has joined forces with Miss Jamie at Spotlight Dance Company for intense toning and conditioning classes.

Mrs. Patricia Demore says “the curriculum focuses on developing leadership, dedication to sport, time management skills all while having fun and making friends for life.”

The class runs all this semester and many of the girls are also a part of the school dance team which recently auditioned for the upcoming Lion’s Club/CTV Christmas Telethon.
