Victoria Rawski, a Grade 6 student at Honoré Mercier Elementary School in St. Leonard, has been selected to represent Canada at the International Mundialito Tournament, which will take place under the auspices of FIFA from April 1 to April 9, 2023 in Spain.
This is an international event that brings together the world's elite soccer players in age-based categories between eight and 13 years old. For this exclusive tournament, École Sportive Montréal Canada is proud to count on the participation of a player from the Montreal region. Victoria also plays for the St Leonard Lions and practices two to three times a week. She must also train at home with exercises sent from her coach. She is very dedicated.
“Victoria has been playing soccer since she was a little girl,” says her mom Jennifer Uniat. “It started out for fun, and throughout COVID became essential for physical and mental health. She has gained confidence through the sport and is passionate on the field.”
Victoria is an honours student at Honoré Mercier and of Ukrainian background. In 2021-2022, she collected soccer balls as part of a school project to give to the Ukrainians that arrived in Montreal. She was hoping to share a smile despite languages barriers and difficulties of starting over. “Friendship without boarders” was the title of her project. She collected so many soccer balls that she is still continuing this project. Victoria was also recently voted as the most “caring” classmate in her class.
We are thrilled to hear that you have selected Honoré Mercier as your child(ren)’s elementary school. We look forward to having you join our family.

On the eve of Elementary School Registration Week for the 2023-2024 academic year, the English Montreal School Board will celebrate bilingualism and the excellent quality of French instruction available in its elementary and secondary schools.
Le Mois du français à la CSEM will take place during the month of January. A familiar EMSB slogan, “Être bilingue, c’est gagnant !” promotes the fact that being bilingual represents a winning formula.

“We are very proud of the quality of French instruction our students receive,” said EMSB Chair Joe Ortona. “Bilingualism is a passport to the world. And if we want our kids to remain in the province of Quebec, we must provide them with the tools necessary to pursue careers here.”
Mr. Ortona attended the EMSB’s Nesbitt Elementary School and Vincent Massey Collegiate in Rosemount. As a practicing lawyer, he conducts his work mainly in French.
