A Grade 7 French Immersion student at Nelson’s Trafalgar Middle School has been hired by the CBC.
Tasia Arteaga Radonich, 13, who was selected after applying for a job with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, will be working for the soon-to-be-launched CBC Kids News an online news portal for…kids. Tasia has been hired to sit as a member on the CBC Kids News editorial board. Her duties will be to provide feedback, insights and ideas for the development and ongoing production of the website’s content.
After completing a lengthy online questionnaire, and then a grueling forty-five minute phone interview, Tasia was notified in late-April of her selection and “she is very excited.”
Her first assignment? Review the beta version of the new CBCKids News and offer feedback. Trafalgar is very proud of Tasia and can’t wait to read her contributions!
Tasia, who is being paid a lump sum for the position from May 7 to September 26, will work on most of her assignments from home but will also get input from fellow students at school, said her teacher, Stephanie Davina.
