Activities at St. Joseph School
January 31 2011
Each year students are encouraged to participate in cultural activities despite the limited number of student population of St. Joseph in Port-Menier.
Activities are closely linked to Anticosti Island folk tales, legends and musical selections, a legacy left by the ancestors. The school brings this legacy to life in writing, drama and music activities.
Towards the end of the school year, students present their creations to the parents and the general population.
In the winter, when weather permits, students participate in sporting activities including ice skating and curling.
Occasionally, students participate in activities such as cooking with some moms.
activities are mostly financed by special projects including NANS, Culture in the School and Healthy Schools.
