Leadership at CHSS encompasses a variety of extra curricular clubs and committees including:
Students' Council here at CHSS is made up of a group of hardworking, dedicated students who care to make a difference in their school and communities. From Terry Fox in September to Christmas Auction in December to the Health Active Living Week later in the school year, they work with community members to bridre the gap between our school and our local communities. They are role models throughout the school and their communities. They work in close partnership with local charities and are always looking to make difference. Their school spirit is unmatched and their drive and determiniation to make an impact on the lives of others is undoubtedly respectable.

The Dance committee are a group of students that promote, organize and run the school dances during the year. They are a 'behind the scenes' group that ensure that DJs are booked, posters are created, areas are decorated, tickets are sold and everything runs smoothly. As a result of their hard work, CHSS holds 4 school dances throughout the year, beginning with a 'Back to School Dance' in September. The dances are held in the main gym, run from 7:30 p.m. - 11:00 p.m. and are open to all CHSS students in good standing. Buses run from both Marmora and Tweed, to help with transportation. All proceeds go back into leadership activities!

"Coffee House" has grown to become a CHSS tradition. Whether it's being held in the Drama room or the Courtyard, students come out in droves to watch home grown Centurion talent sing, play instruments, recite poetry and perform dramatic pieces. Usually held in the evening, once a semester, Coffee House is sure to please the creative side in every Centurion!
