ChatterHigh is back this fall with a remodelled website, a new “class challenge” feature, and its second national post-secondary and career exploration competition called “Canada’s Most Informed School.” Beaconsfield High School teacher Jesse Hayes says, “ChatterHigh creates a win-win situation for both educators and students.”
Round one of ChatterHigh’s “most informed” contest begins on April 11, 2016. The on-line contest is open to all Secondary Cycle 2 students. The round two finals run October 17 to 25. The top students will receive scholarships.
Students in Québec will soon have access to a robust version of ChatterHigh online, where they will have fun, learn, win contests, and do fundraising—all while exploring career and post-secondary options.
