February 22, 2012 - St. David Catholic School proudly welcomed the magic of "The Amazing Rene" aka Rene Lacourciere. The Amazing Rene captivated the attention of the students of St. David School with his unique style of slight of hand magic. During his magic show, The Amazing Rene integrated the importance of learning through reading and emphasized the valuable resources available at the Greater City of Sudbury Public Libraries.

The Amazing Rene has been performing magic throughout North America for the past 32 years and has preformed at such venues as Canada's Wonderland and Santa's Village in Bracebridge, Ontario. He is also a qualified teacher and is originally from the Sudbury area.

"Slight of hand magic allows me to connect with students and teachers and model the importance of effective oral communication" stated Rene. "They see how effective oral communication skills are important in real life situations and in career choices".

St. David School students and staff enjoyed the interactive magic show, comedy act and hands on learning experience with The Amazing Rene.
