Grade 4, 5 & 6 students at St. Theresa Catholic school enjoyed the opportunity to explore the many aspects of their Canadian Heritage and present their projects to fellow students and judges at the Heritage Fair held at the school recently. The classroom evaluation in the French Immersion Program includes “les science sociales, communication orale, and redaction.” Grade 4 students, Daniella Mardero (left) and Alanna Skot give a brief presentation on the history of Marymount Academy to Rossella Bagatto, Superintendent of Education for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board. The students selected this particular project because Alanna’s two sisters attend Marymount and as Daniella stated, “My mom is in charge of the school and my dad works there,” referring to the fact that Mrs. Patty Mardero is the Principal of Marymount Academy and Eric Mardero is the teacher for the Gifted Students Program at the school.|
“La petite Italie,” by Scott Fleury and “Marymount” by Alanna Skot and Daniella Mardero were chosen to represent the Grade 4 class while Jennifer Donnelly’s project, “Ma famille,” and Peyton Pressaco’s project , “Sudbury Cherche et Sauver,” from Grade 5/6 were selected to represent their school at the Regional Heritage Fair to be held May 6th and 7th at Laurentian University. St. Theresa Catholic school would like to thank the following judges for taking time to help with the Heritage Fair; Councillor, Ron Dupuis, Mme. Annette Blais-Laforge, Mme. Denise Massimiliano, Mme. Maureen Lacroix, Mme. Marthe Poirier. Mme. Lorraine Sahadat and M. Gerry Robillard.
