The CECCE and Frontenac Cultural Centre forge a partnership

September 26, 2014 

KINGSTON – With the opening of the 2014-2015 artistic season at the Frontenac Cultural Centre, the Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est(CECCE) is proud to announce a new partnership bringing these two organizations together to promote francophone culture among students in the Kingston, Brockville, Merrickville and Trenton areas. Under a four-year agreement, schools will have access to free tickets for performances at Kingston’sThéâtre L'Octave.

The CECCE and its schools in the region will benefit from increased visibility during shows and promotions by the Frontenac Cultural Centre. As well, students will have access to specially priced tickets, as a way of promoting francophone culture among young people. The schools involved in the partnership are École secondaire catholique Marie-Rivier (Kingston), École élémentaire catholique Monseigneur-Rémi-Gaulin (Kingston), École élémentaire catholique Sainte-Marguerite-Bourgeoys (Merrickville), Académie catholique Ange-Gabriel (Brockville) and École élémentaire catholique L’Envol (Trenton).

The opportunity to strengthen the synergy between the CECCE and the community in the area is an exciting one, according to Anne Gutknecht, Executive Director of the Frontenac Cultural Centre: “There is no education without culture, just as there is no culture without education. The Frontenac Cultural Centre is proud to count the CECCE as one of its artistic partners for the next four years. This partnership will help valorize francophone culture in the Kingston and Thousand Islands community, especially among the next generation. Together, we will make this artistic leap.”

“An agreement of this size gives our students many opportunities to steep themselves in francophone culture, and become engaged citizens and active members of the broader Franco-Ontarian family,” said Bernard Roy, Director of Education of the Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est.

CECCE Chair Denis Poirier agrees: “The Frontenac Cultural Centre is already a cultural leader in the Kingston region. This partnership will make francophone culture even more accessible to our students.”

With more than 21,000 students in 41 elementary and 10 secondary schools, as well as its school for adults, the CECCE is the largest Canadian network of French-language schools outside Quebec.

success and well-being of each student
