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.”
