New MATIS Vocation, a First in Francophone Ontario

April 26, 2018, OTTAWA - The Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE) is pleased to announce École élémentaire catholique Roger-Saint-Denis’s new vocation.

The MATIS vocation, a first in francophone Ontario, is a program that integrates math, arts, technology, engineering and science into students’ everyday learning opportunities and their overall academic experience. By fostering students’ creativity, ingenuity and curiosity at the elementary level, this new program will prepare them for a future in which most of the jobs they will do don’t yet exist.

“The CECCE is proud to be the first francophone school board in Ontario to offer this vocation, which will enable schools and teachers to guide students in the era of access to information, new technology, and knowledge proliferation,” explained Johanne Lacombe, CECCE Chair.

The teaching team is committed to implementing this proven pedagogical approach that promotes student-centred, student-driven learning. Teacher engagement is key to helping students develop the creativity they need to adapt to a constantly changing world.  

“The MATIS vocation is an excellent way to prepare students for a changing world. It aligns perfectly with the CECCE’s leadership vision for student engagement, the learning experience, change management and team mobilization,” said Réjean Sirois, Director of Education.  

Parents and students interested in the MATIS program can visit the École élémentaire catholique Roger-Saint-Denis website to find out more. Register now at
