The PSSC is having their first meeting Tuesday, October 15th in the Library at 7pm.



This fall, high schools are invited to take part in the 4th annual New Brunswick ChatterHigh Competition.  This year’s event will run from September 30 – November 29, 2019. A total of $10,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to top schools. In addition, there are exciting technology draw prizes to be won throughout the competition. The New Brunswick ChatterHigh Competition coincides with the Canada Career Month and Canada’s Most Informed School Competition (Oct. 28 – Dec. 6).

To participate, students complete a daily, short, on-line quiz that will engage them in an active exploration of labour market information, post-secondary education and career options.  Points are earned as participants explore and answer questions correctly.  Schools will increase their rankings based on a per capita score.  Families and teachers can participate as well, helping the school raise funds while discovering useful information and resources.

It also contains a Consent Form which must be completed, signed and returned to your child’s English teacher before the day of the event.
