“The CECCE was so proud to see one of its own atop the podium at Épelle-Moi Canada, the first-ever French edition of the Spelling Bee of Canada championships. Épelle-Moi Canada is an extremely enriching experience for all participants, and it accentuates the importance of transmitting Franco-Ontarian culture and a love of the French language to Ontario students,” said Johanne Lacombe, CECCE Chair.

Another of the seven CECCE students who participated in the national finals in Toronto, Léa Vobonik of École élémentaire catholique Saint-Joseph d’Orléans, placed third in the primary category.

Director of Education Réjean Sirois was very pleased to hear the news. “I’m delighted to see how talented our CECCE students are. The audience witnessed an incredible performance, and the students and their families should be so proud. I also want to applaud the teachers who played such a vital part in preparing the students and helping them succeed, and I thank the organizing committee for setting up this wonderful event,” he said.

Together for
success and well-being of each student
