TEALS.png
2018 TEALS Volunteer Recruitment letter.pdf

Handsworth Secondary School has an exciting opportunity to partner with TEALS (Technology Education and Literacy in Schools) for the 2018/19 year! Learning computer science empowers young people to compete in the global economy and pursue careers across all sectors because it teaches students computational thinking and problem solving skills applicable in any industry. This partnership will enhance our computer science courses, and we need computer industry volunteers to help make it happen!


If you or someone you know works in the computer science or software engineering field and would be interested in making a difference in our students’ future success, please contact Ms. Rupi Samra at rsamra@sd44.ca.
