Wednesday, August 14, 2019, OTTAWA – The Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE) is announcing a brand new electronic sports program in partnership with Sports Canada Academy Inc. (AEC). This program will be offered at the Minto Professional and Technical Centre as a premiere at the beginning of the new school year.

“This new partnership with the ACS will allow students to have access to specialized equipment and to be supported by experienced professionals: instructors, special assignment teachers, educational technicians, social workers, as well as consultants from the education community who already work with the CECCE,” proudly states President Johanne Lacombe. “In addition, by allowing students to be at the heart of innovation, the CECCE is pursuing its mission to update the Student Exit Profile, giving participants the opportunity to develop their critical thinking skills and creativity. »

This unique program in Ontario will allow participants to develop critical thinking, communication skills, teamwork skills, and learn how to protect themselves from cyberbullying and cyberaddiction. Healthy lifestyle habits will also be promoted through this program, while the schedule will also include additional physical education activities and meditation. Through this varied programming, the CECCE will encourage students to develop good physical fitness, with the goal of ensuring a balance between their physical and mental well-being.

“Electronic sports are experiencing significant growth and a marked increase in their popularity internationally. In addition, many new careers are emerging from this industry. The Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est sees this as a great opportunity to offer its students stimulating, exciting and engaging programs that are in line with the approach of transforming the learning experience, in addition to opening doors to unique careers,” says Director of Education Réjean Sirois.

“Our partnership with the Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est is a major step in our development in the education sector. We are honoured to work with one of the best school boards in Canada. By combining their enormous experience in education and their strong drive for innovation with our expertise in electronic sports and healthy coaching, we are confident that we will be able to put in place a quality program that meets the expectations of the participants and their families,” said Patrick Pigeon, President and CEO of Passport Canada Academy Inc.

Approximately 80 students from the Minto Professional and Technical Centre will begin a new school year on Tuesday, August 20, one week earlier than the other students at the Council.
