St. Raphael Student a Mining Week Poster Contest Winner


May 4, 2012 - Five grade 5-8 classes in the city had the opportunity to win a Discovery Mining tour April 30-May 4 through a poster contest for this year’s Sudbury Mining Week - and one of the winners was Thomas Crowther. Crowther, a grade 6 student at St. Raphael Elementary Catholic School was excited to have been chosen as a winner. His teacher, Kevin Krystia said that it was a hard choice selecting one poster to submit for his class, but ultimately it was Crowther's that he thought would be the best submission. "The poster truly reflected the theme of Mining Week - Mining and technology for the next generation," Kristia stated. "Thomas's poster depicted mining in the past, present and in the future - showing mining on Mars. This was great as it not only related to the theme of Mining Week, Thomas was also able to connect to space and space exploration which is part of the grade 6 curriculum. " Crowther was happy that his classmates also got to enjoy in his prize - a trip to Dynamic Earth for the entire class which took place on Friday, March 4th.
