St. James Students Participate in Celebration of La Ste-Catherine

St. James teacher Francine Gaudette (Soeur Marguerite Bourgeoys) gives a group of students a history lesson about La Ste-Catherine.

December 1, 2015 - On Wednesday, November 25th, St. James Catholic Elementary School students participated in a celebration of La Ste-Catherine. They learned about Marguerite Bourgeoys and how this nun established a school in Ville-Marie (Montreal) by making pull taffy (la tire) to attract the native students to her class. The French immersion teachers prepared the taffy the night before so that their students can taste this sweet confection. Stations in the gym were set up with different activities including dancing to french canadian music, a history lesson from Soeur Marguerite Bourgeoys (Mme Gaudette) and taffy tasting.
