St. Anne Student Finds Contest Has "Sweet" Benefits

Vice-principal Miss Joanne Commisso stands with Mr. Patrick Corbin, a Gr. 4 French Immersion student and principal for the day at St. Anne School in Hanmer. Patrick won the role as the top seller in a school chocolate bar fundraiser.

December 7, 2011 - Patrick Corbin, a Gr. 4 French Immersion student at St. Anne School in Hanmer, started his school year off joined by hundreds of other students within the school in a chocolate bar fund raising contest. Little did he know that when the fund raiser was over, he and his classmates within Mme Pickard's Grade 3/4 French Immersion room would be the top selling class within the school. The Sudbury Catholic School students won a pizza and movie afternoon for their efforts. In addition, one student was to be chosen to take over the job of Principal Mr. Guy Mathieu for the day. That student was Patrick. Besides helping his class to win, Patrick was the student who actually sold the most chocolate bars in the entire fundraising campaign and as such, was voted by his classmates to change roles from student to principal.

Dressed in a white shirt and tie, Patrick, or Mr. Corbin as he preferred to be addressed, performed many tasks throughout the day. He walked throughout the school meeting with many children from within the student body. He became very popular with the entire student population when he extended the afternoon recess by an extra five minutes and declared a "no homework day". When asked if all of his hard work selling the chocolate bars was worth the outcome, Mr. Corbin was quoted as saying," I had a lot of organizing to do with the new balls for the gym and preparing paper work to ready for the announcements." St. Anne School vice-principal, Joanne Commisso, said "It was a pleasure working with the new principal for the day," and thanked him for his efforts. A taste of being charge has Patrick geared up for next fall when the school fund raising contest comes around again. The staff and students at St. Anne School are very proud of your efforts Patrick. Way to go Angel!
