In an educational setting that encourages openness to the world, respect for others and self-esteem, the staff of Conseil scolaire public du Grand Nord de l’Ontario (CSPGNO) has a warm welcome ready for the return of their happy and smiling elementary and secondary school students on Wednesday, September 6th.

In the words of Director of Education Marc Gauthier, “the CSPGNO provides a school environment where each student’s strengths and talents are recognized and supported throughout their academic path. In the CSPGNO, we offer our students a variety of programs, services and initiatives that foster not only their well-being, but also their pride in their linguistic and cultural background. We have an outstanding team that is remarkable for its commitment and professionalism and that works together for a common cause: our students. In the CSPGNO, we ensure that every child we welcome in our schools will have an enriching experience in order to achieve his or her full potential and take their place as citizens of the world.”

The CSPGNO is a model of success. Attendance numbers and new school openings are rising in response to the needs of parents who want French-language public education for their children in a modern and innovative environment that promotes educational success and human values.

The CSPGNO invites everyone to view its 2017 “welcome back to school” video at and reminds parents that there’s still time to register their children in a CSPGNO school.
