Seven Conseil scolaire catholiqe du Nouvel-Ontario students will be representing Ontario in the upcoming Jeux de la francophonie canadienne (Canadian Francophone Games).

The games will be held in Gatineau, Que., July 23-27.

Students from CSCNO — a school board that runs from early childhood to adult education — are training hard to compete in the games.

The following CSCNO students were selected for the Ontario team based on criteria of excellence in discipline and commitment to the Francophonie: Carl Aho, Collège Notre-Dame (Sudbury): leadership - event management; Benjamin Doudard, Collège Notre-Dame (Sudbury): leadership - media; Lionel Lemieux, Collège Notre- Dame (Sudbury): athletics; Dominique O'Bonsawin, Collège Notre- Dame (Sudbury): music; Ceilidh-Ann O'Hearn-Krapp, ÉS.C. Trillium (Chapleau): ultimate frisbee; Megan Spooner, É.s. Notre-Dame-du-Sault (Sault Ste-Marie): athletics; Nicholas Stos, ÉSC Jeunesse-Nord (Blind River): improvisation.

With more than 7,300 students in their 38 different schools and more than 1,200 students competing, they are going to have to train hard, said the school board in a news release.

Students will take part in team Ontario's training camp July 20-23, held in Ottawa.

“The Jeux de la francophonie will provide our students with skill sets they can use to continue to assume leadership roles in our French-language Catholic schools and in their community,”said CSCNO Director of Education Lyse-Ann Papineau.
