As part of the Sudbury Catholic Board’s celebration of the International Day of La Francophonie, students in all schools across the board were involved in designing a button that reflected their perspective on celebrating and acknowledging the French language.
The first place winner in the Sudbury Catholic Board’s Francophone button contest was Roman Leblanc, a grade 8 French Immersion student at St. James School. Roman “designed the button to represent our French culture. The button includes the Canadian and Franco-Ontarien flags and the flags are surrounded by the international French colours”.
Roman’s button was distributed to students boardwide as part of Sudbury Catholic’s Franco-Fun celebration.
On hand during the festivities at St. James was school trustee Estelle Scappatura who congratulated Roman on his unique design for his button.
