When classes began at the English Montreal School Board (EMSB) today, a unique new program linking pedagogy and sports was formally launched at Holy Cross Elementary School in St. Laurent. EMSB Chairman Dominic Spiridigliozzi, Director General Antonio Lacroce and Borough Mayor Alan DeSousa were among those on hand for a special opening ceremony. The program, for students in Cycle III (Grades 5 and 6), will offer a quality education and the opportunity for elite athletes to develop their skills in ice hockey. It is hoped that other sports can be added in the years to come.
