Students at St. Charles College celebrate St. Jean Baptiste Day

June 20, 2018 - Grade 7-8 French Immersion students at St. Charles College opened this week by celebrating St. Jean Baptiste Day with a vanilla ice cream and maple syrup party to emulate “la tire d’érable” a French Canadian tradition of pouring maple syrup on snow. The festivities will continue with bubble soccer, swimming, French movies and music.

St. Jean Baptiste Day is celebrated annually on June 24th. It is the feast of St. John the Baptist who is known as the patron saint of French Canada. Sudbury Catholic Schools honours this day annually with “Franco-fun” days celebrated in a multitude of ways in a variety of their schools. St. Charles College students are proud of the vast cultures that flourish within their school and are pleased to celebrate Canada’s second official language.
