Montreal - Monday, January 9, 2023

As part of Le Mois du français à la CSEM, which will take place throughout January at the English Montreal School Board, the Willingdon Elementary School choir, led by  Director Nick Batzios, created a special jingle to serve as the campaign’s theme song.

Students across the EMSB were challenged to put the theme of Être bilingue, C’est gagnant to music.

The winning students from Willingdon School will also receive the opportunity to professionally record their jingle with the help of SophistOccasion Showband. The jingle will also serve as the EMSB on-hold message in 2023.

Special thanks goes out to Nicolas Doyon, an EMSB pedagogical dance, drama, music and visual arts consultant, for his assistance.

You can listen to the song here:
