Committees & Clubs
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 3:15 pm in 221B.
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 Work Experience Coordinator or your AP for more information on joining or becoming a CHAMP.
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 3:15 in 221B.
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 Mrs. Belter in the ASOC.
The Muslim Club
The Muslim Club is a small group of students with a two-fold aim. First, to help our Centre High community through various volunteer events; this may include peer tutoring and helping out at the Emergency Relief Centre. Second, as a support group for Centre High’s Muslim students to strengthen their faith, collaborating with The Green Room. We currently meet every second Tuesday from 3:15 – 4:00 pm in The Green Room (4th floor). For more information, see Mrs. Fayad.
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 Mrs. Gilroyed in Room 406B (The Student Support & Career Centre).
