BOARD GAME CLUB
The Board Game Club is a space where students can come and play a new and exciting game each week. Students get together to solve common goals, and learn new skills that translate into real life. Using wit, strategy, and sometimes ruthless mind games, students are encouraged to take each other on for the title of game champ. Our club is growing, and we encourage anyone interested in gaming to come on out. Join us on Wednesdays at 3:30 pm in 206B.
Looking to sharpen your own thinking and understanding for university? Do you need to raise your marks? Get volunteer hours? Consider accessing CHAMP - Centre High Campus' Academic Mentorship Program. Available to all students at CHC, CHAMP supports students who want to raise their grades: both students who are struggling, and students who want to push their GPA into the 90's.
Research shows that the best learning occurs when we need to explain or teach a concept to someone else. Students who participate in CHAMP have seen their grades go up 20-30%, while helping them to keep their understanding of their course work sharpened for university!
See our Off Campus Coordinator or your AP for more information on joining or becoming a CHAMP.
eSports (electronic sports) is the competitive wing of multiplayer gaming which includes a wide range of ways and games to play. Today, playing video games dominates the after-school hours of high school students worldwide. To say this is troublesome would be a misdirected concern as the world of professional eSports is expected to reach nearly 5 billion in value and a global audience of nearly 600 million people by 2020. In 2018, the second most watched sporting event in America after the Superbowl was the League of Legends finals.
At Centre High we are taking the interests of our students and repackaging it in a way such that they play a game altogether where they must form a team, socialize, and form relationships with other people in the physical sense, as well as the virtual sense. This helps channel that energy and interest in the right direction.
We meet as a club on Wednesdays after school from 3:30 – 4:30 pm. Depending on student interest, different games are played in different areas of the computer lab. Students gravitate to the game they want to compete in.
Every semester a different game is played competitively. Students who make the team must register with the league and will compete against other eSports teams in the district. Playoffs happen at the end of each semester, last one and a half days, and prizes are handed out to the individuals on the first place team.
Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA)
Centre High's Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) is a club which provides a safe place for students to meet, support each other, talk about issues related to sexual orientation and gender identity and expression, and work to end homophobia and transphobia. We meet every Tuesday at 3:30 in 201B.
The Makerspace is a creative and innovative addition to our learning commons called the ASOC (Academic Support and Online Centre). Using a variety of technologies like littleBits, Makey Makeys, the Green Screen and so much more, students actively participate in a wide range of challenges to stretch their problem solving skills and develop effective collaboration strategies. It's a fun space that students can access for school projects or simply as a means to explore a different way to create meaning. For more information, see Mr. Rinn or Mrs. Belter in the ASOC.
Bring (or start) a knitting/crocheting project to the ASOC MakerSpace every Friday afternoon in blocks 4 & 5.
Open to all students! Begins November 15th.
YOUNG BLOOD FOR LIFE
Young Blood for Life (YBFL) is a program just for young Canadians that calls on student leaders in high schools to inspire their peers, teachers and families to give blood. Our Youth Development Champion program helps give these leaders the tools and ideas to encourage blood donation.
Centre High Campus joined Young Blood for Life in 2015-16 with 3 student leaders as “Young Blood Champions” organizing classroom visits, blood donations for students, teachers & family at clinics, as well as ONE Match and Blood Typing events at our school.
Student volunteers are encouraged to join our YBFL committee in September and help our community raise awareness about the importance of both blood and One Match donations. For more information see Mr. Dempster.
