Ms. Diane St-Jacques (Shefford, Lib.)

Mr. Speaker, I am very proud to be able to tell you about an absolutely exceptional Internet site that was created by citizens in the riding of Shefford. is a virtual gateway to learning.
Its designers recognize that every student is unique and, with this site, give students an opportunity to develop that unique potential. Their mission is to encourage academic success by providing French-speaking secondary school students in Canada with an opportunity for better student-teacher interaction.
Their mandate: to optimize learning opportunities through an innovative concept of academic assistance through both virtual and real contact. This project was made possible by a grant from the Industry Canada SchoolNet program.
Congratulations to Micheline Émond and all her team. They have understood that success builds confidence and self-esteem, and academic success means involvement and an upbeat attitude.
