Here is what is happening at Charles Hays Secondary School this month.



  • We continue to keep safety as our top priority.  We welcomed Andrew Johnson as our door greeter and he ensures that everyone has a mask and uses the hand sanitizer each time they enter the school.  We review and monitor our other protocols on an ongoing basis.
  • We still have bottled water stations set up, the water testing was underway and then the most recent boil water advisory occurred.


Teams and Clubs:

  • Student Council and the Interact Club are running.
  • The after-school art program should be starting soon.



  • The Drama students are busy working on this year’s Musical “The Brothers Grimm”, they will be filming in late January and presenting virtually in early February.
  • The Basketball Academy is busy training hard before and after school.
  • The Band is also busy practicing before school.
  • Our Counselling Department is showing all grade 12 students how to access their transcripts via the online service.



  • Three students participated in a Virtual Student Voice event.
