Arctic Visit Pierre de Coubertin
The Montreal North Arctic Junior AAA team continued their “Stay in School” tour of East End EMSB schools with a visit to Pierre de Coubertin Elementary in St. Léonard. Team Vice-President Lina Di Giovanni was accompanied by players Christiano Paterno, Benedic Jobin, Tristan Lortie and Kristopher Joseph. Paterno is a Pierre de Coubertin grad and he received a warm welcome. The players first spoke about their present-day pedagogical priorities and how they are combined with hockey. They then took part in an entertaining scrimmage with the students. On Wednesday night, November 14, many Pierre de Coubertin students and staff will be in attendance at the Arctic home game. Thanks to Principal Ida Pisano, Vice-Principal Ruben Azvedo and physical education and health teacher Patrizia Granaudo, who was pleased to see her former student Paterno again.
